Residents are being urged to have their voices heard on local matters by taking part in a new survey.

Hertsmere Borough Council is keen to establish residents' views on significant local issues, aiming to set priorities and provide appropriate support.

The council plans to seek this input at regular intervals throughout the year.

Councillor Christian Gray, portfolio holder for Communities, Neighbourhoods, Enforcement, Economic Development and Transformation, said: "We want you to let us know what is important to you as this will enable us to identify the appropriate responses and put support in place.

"This forms part of our on-going commitment to being resident-led in our approach to decision making and policy development.

"From mental health to physical health, education to employment, we want to gauge a better sense of the key local issues affecting you most so we hope you will take a few minutes to complete our survey."

Residents have until the stroke of midnight on January 29, to share their opinions.

On the project's website page, it says: "We value your insights about Hertsmere's current communication and engagement strategies.

"Help us improve by sharing how you get your news, what initiatives you'd like to learn about, and how we can serve you better."
