PUBLIC ASKED FOR VIEWS ON COUNCILíS PERFORMANCE AND CAMPAIGNING PRIORITIES

A total of 7,000 Highland residents, chosen randomly, are being invited to have their on say on what they think of the services The Highland Council provides and the campaigning issues the Council is promoting.

Questionnaires should be arriving on doorsteps from Monday 28 June and all those who respond by 15 July will be entered in a prize draw for £50 worth of leisure vouchers.

Councillor David Alston, Chairman of The Highland Councilís Renewing Democracy and Community Planning Select Committee, said: ďEvery year, the Council undertakes a Performance Survey of a large sample of residents.  We provide a wide range of services and it is important that we know what citizens and customers think of the services we provide so that we can maintain our efforts to continually improve services.  A core set of questions is asked on an ongoing basis and through this the council can see whether it is improving services.

ďThis year, we are also seeking the publicís views on our campaigning priorities.  We are well placed to campaign on behalf of citizens of the Highlands on issues as diverse as GM crops, affordable housing, fuel prices and the Skye Bridge.  We would like to know whether we have the right campaigning priorities and how successful we are at campaigning.Ē 

All responses will be treated confidentially.

Copies of the final survey will be made publicly available after 19 September through Council Service Points and on the Councilís web site: www.highland.gov.uk
