The survey gives all residents the opportunity to tell the Council about their experiences of living in Maidstone. From housing to health and well-being, waste and recycling to the cost-of-living crisis, resident’s viewpoints are extremely valuable and will help inform the decisions the Council makes.
Cllr Lottie Parfitt-Reid, MBC Lead Member for Communities and Public Engagement, said:
“This survey gives residents the perfect opportunity to let us know what they think about living in Maidstone. The current cost-of-living crisis is putting pressure on households across our communities along with the continued impact of the pandemic on our health and well-being. Understanding what our residents need is key to the way in which we deliver our services and plan for the future.
“It has questions about the way residents prefer to contact the council, how much people get involved in their community or voluntary groups as well as the local economy.”
“There is even an opportunity for every resident who completes the survey to enter into a prize draw with a selection of prizes ranging from a seven day gym pass to a meal voucher for the fantastic Love Food @ Lockmeadow.
“It’s important we hear from everyone, it doesn’t matter if you are new to the area or don’t pay council tax we want your views. Help us improve the local area and the services we provide in ways that matter to you by completing the survey.”
