Welcome to the Autumn 2009 edition of our Newsletter and a big thank you to all panel members who completed and returned our Summer 2009 survey. We hope you enjoy completing our Autumn survey as it will help us to shape and improve policies and services in Calderdale in the way you would like us to.
Surveys in 2009
Since joining the panel earlier this year our new panellists have already been asked to complete two surveys. The spring edition included questions on a variety of topics, results of which are detailed in this Newsletter. The summer survey was a ‘special edition’ as this included questions exclusively on NHS Calderdale issues. Results for this edition will be given later in a separate Newsletter.
Inside this issue
The spring survey contained eight topics on issues and initiatives relating to Council services in Calderdale. The results are summarised in the following pages and the topics covered include:
- Winter road maintenance service
- Museums and galleries
- Your home and neighbourhood
- Building Schools for the Future
- When you get in touch with us
- Alcohol awareness
- Drug related issues
- Calderdale markets.
