Starting this week, over 4,000 people living across the borough will receive a residents’ survey questionnaire, offering them the opportunity to evaluate services provided by North Tyneside Council and suggest improvements for the local area.
North Tyneside Elected Mayor, Norma Redfearn said: “Residents are at the heart of decision making in North Tyneside and with their help we continue to make great improvements to the borough and to our services.
“The annual residents’ survey is a very important way of the public letting us know how we’re doing and I’d urge everyone who receives a questionnaire to fill it in so we have a clear picture of the views of residents.
“I have always prided myself on being a listening mayor and I value all the feedback I receive from the public.
“For those who don’t receive a questionnaire, there are a number of other ways they can give their feedback and I’d encourage them to do so.”
Households selected to take part in the survey are chosen at random and all feedback remains anonymous and confidential.
Residents have until November 4 to complete and return their questionnaire in the pre-paid envelope provided.
The survey is being managed on behalf of the council by independent research company Ipsos Mori.
Residents can also contact the Elected Mayor by emailingNorma.Redfearn@northtyneside.gov.uk or calling (0191) 643 5314.
