Press Release: 10/05/2011

Do you want to make a difference in your local area? Are you happy, healthy, and do you feel safe? To help us find out complete the Winchester City Council’s Active Community Change Plan online survey. The topics being covered are:

· Crime and Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
· Health and Well Being
· Winchester Celebrations for London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

The council is seeking your views on a number of services that affect local people. The results from the survey will help to identify community priorities, shape how resources are going to be used and contribute to the annual crime and disorder review. Those who live and work in the district are being asked to participate in the survey by sharing their views and experiences.

Jen Anderson, Assistant Director for Active Communities said, “Local people’s opinions are an essential part of shaping the future services provided by Winchester City Council. This consultation process will help us to gain a clearer understanding of what local communities would like the Active Communities priorities to be”.
