Council Leader

A new community survey which gives local people the chance to help shape the way Renfrewshire Council works has been launched.

The council started its Our Renfrewshire survey today (Monday 13 May). The survey, which is open for four weeks, is open to anyone who lives, works and studies in the area and will help shape a new set of values for the organisation, which will shape how the council communicates and works with communities and partners in the future.

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.

Renfrewshire Council Leader, Iain Nicolson, said: “The Our Renfrewshire survey is quick to fill out and your contribution will make a big difference. We want to know what matters to you, what you value and how we can work together to transform the way we work, building a better Renfrewshire for everyone.

“This survey will help us develop a new set of council values that will shape how we communicate and work with you in the future.

“If you live, work or study in Renfrewshire, we want to hear from you. From our day to day work and our regular conversations, we know communities are keen to work with us so we want everyone to have their say.

“Your views are very important so please get involved in the survey. Don’t miss your chance to shape Renfrewshire’s future.”

The Our Renfrewshire community survey, which includes a short set of simple questions, closes on Friday 7 June.
