What is important to you?

With the need for longer-term planning in order to minimise financial pressures, Mid Suffolk District Council (MSDC) is asking local communities (residents and businesses) what services the council should or should not be providing.  Information gathered will help to prioritise the council’s work in the future.

MSDC are asking questions such as “What’s good about living here?; What do you want to change?  What community facilities are being well used and also under-used?” and also “What should the Council be doing more – and less – of in the future?”

Discussions with many residents have highlighted the following issues.  Which of these do you feel need the most attention?

1. Having an efficient rural transport system

2. The need for safe foot/cycle-paths (and lower traffic speeds)

3. Access to high-speed broadband

4. Price of heating oil and also petrol

5. Employment opportunities for young people

6. Affordable housing for local families

7. Volunteers to run local clubs and services

And are there any specific issues businesses have that MSDC can help solve?

Please let me know your thoughts.

If you want to understand more of the detail, please get in touch.  You can also respond directly to MSDC via the council’s website www.midsuffolk.gov.uk.  (Look for “Community Engagement 2012”.)
