Council Leader

Local people are being urged to have their say on the way Renfrewshire Council works before the ‘Our Renfrewshire’ community survey closes in a fortnight’s time.

Hundreds of local people have already completed the survey, which includes a short set of simple questions.

The survey is designed to start a conversation about the values that are most important to local people and the values and behaviours they expect from the Council.

Feedback from the survey will be used to help develop a new set of values for the council, which will shape how the organisation communicates and works with communities and partners in the future.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson, said: “This survey will change the way we work as a council in the future. We want as many people to take part as possible.

“We want to know what matters most to you, what you value and how we can be the best organisation we can be. We will use what you tell us to transform the way we work and communicate with you in future.

“This is your opportunity to get involved and help shape how we work together to make sure Renfrewshire continues to be a great place to live, work and study.”

The survey, which closes on Friday 7 June, is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Renfrewshire.

The Council employs almost 8,000 people, most of whom live in the area, and delivers a range of public services including waste and recycling collections, maintenance for local roads, schools and homes, as well as the provision of local education services and care for the most vulnerable.
