Covid-19 Residents’ Survey Results

About the consultation

We launched a survey for residents to have their say on the effect of Coronavirus on their lives. The survey ran for six weeks during July and August. 

We did this because we wanted to understand how your life has been affected and the things you need to build a better future. 

We will continue to work with you to make sure we address these needs over the coming months. 

We received 623 responses to the survey so thank you.
