Wyre residents are being urged to share their views on the borough and shape services in their neighbourhoods.

Wyre Council wants to know what people think about everything from rubbish collections and affordable housing to job opportunities and anti-social behaviour, in its biennial survey Life In Wyre.

Leader of the council, Coun Peter Gibson, said: “This is an opportunity to directly influence council services and priorities in your area. We want to hear about what we’re doing well and how we can improve.

“Eighty four per cent of residents told us in the last survey that they were satisfied with the area they live in however they also made it clear that more needed to be done about environmental crime including fly-tipping, dog fouling and littering. Since then, tackling this issue has been a top priority; we’ve introduced online reporting where locations can be mapped and invested in systems that allow incidents to be picked up on mobile devices by officers who can respond immediately.

“I want to encourage as many people as possible to spare a few minutes and tell us what they think, as the opinions of residents are fundamental in planning how the council operates in the future.”

A sample of 3,000 surveys have been posted out, and it is also available at: wyre.gov.uk/lifeinwyre.
