Your borough, your say - give us your views online or in-person 

Date: 

Thursday, 4 November, 2021

Residents can now give their views online about the issues and council services that matter the most to them – now and in the future. 

The survey asks residents to give their views on which council services are most important to them, how they feel the council currently delivers its services, and ways the council could manage its finances following the challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. By taking part, residents can help shape the council’s plans for the next five years.

Urging residents to complete the survey, Cllr Ayesha Azad, Leader of Woking Borough Council, said: “The feedback gathered from residents via this important borough-wide consultation will shape our Corporate Plan from 2022 to 2027. A Corporate Plan outlines why a council does what it does, the services it will deliver and it provides the framework for residents to judge our performance.

“We are a public service accountable to local residents, so it’s vitally important that residents let us know what services are important to them and which council services need improving. 

“The survey is easy to access online at www.woking.gov.uk/yoursay and it will remain open until midnight on Friday 10 December 2021. 

“We have also randomly selected 3,000 households across the borough and sent them a hardcopy survey via the post. If you are one of these households, I urge you to complete the survey and return it to us by this date.”

Consultation roadshows

The new survey widens and complements the council’s current consultation activity being conducted across the borough via face to face roadshows with the Leader of the Council, Ayesha Azad and the Chief Executive of the Council, Julie Fisher. 

To date, the council has hosted six successful roadshows with residents in Knaphill, Woking Park, Sheerwater, Woking Town Centre and Byfleet.
