The people of Stirling are being asked to shape the future of Stirling Council’s services with the launch of a new residents survey.

Over a four-week window, starting Friday, 1 November, Stirling’s citizens will be able to have their say on everything from road repairs to street lighting in an effort to ensure the Council provides best value for the citizens it serves.

To take part in this year’s survey, click the following link:

Council Leader, Cllr Scott Farmer, said: “This is an excellent chance for the public to give us their views on the services and facilities the Council provides.

“We want to capture what we’re doing well and where we can improve and it’s vital the public are at the centre of that.

“If there has ever been a time where you’ve been delighted with improvements we’ve made or maybe you have felt our standards weren’t up to scratch, now is the time to tell us, and this is the way to do it.”

Stirling Council has undertaken five residents’ surveys since 2000. The 2019 survey will ask residents to complete their forms online at the link above.

Copies are also available at Council Libraries or Customer First.

The survey will take 15-20mins to complete and is designed to capture satisfaction levels with the full breadth of the Council’s services.

Depute Leader of the Council, Cllr Danny Gibson, said: “This survey will be an important way of communicating with the people we are accountable to.

“If we can gather the views of the public and let our residents influence our decision-making, we can narrow the gap between what our services deliver and what the people who use them actually want.

“Engagement is key and I’d ask everyone who reads this to fill out the survey.”
