Views sought on Derbyshire County Council services

Residents in Derbyshire are being asked for their views on council services.

The county council has drawn up a survey which includes questions on a range of issues from roads to public health and policing.

About 6,000 randomly selected households will be sent a questionnaire giving them an opportunity to have their say on public services.

They will also be asked to list their priorities and explain which issues are most important to them.

'Spending decisions'

The survey will also be made available online for any resident aged over 18 to complete.

Residents have until 26 September to complete the questionnaire.

Leader of Derbyshire County Council, Andrew Lewer, said: "Like councils across the country we are facing some tough spending decisions in Derbyshire, which is why it is more crucial than ever for us to ensure we are on the right track with the services local people need.

"That is why I am urging residents to take a little time to fill in this survey.

"We will use the results for a whole host of purposes to help us provide a high quality public service."
