Annual residents’ survey, have your say on Tamworth as a place to live, council services and council spending

Take the survey and have your say before 23 October 2022.

In this survey we ask questions about what Tamworth is like as a place to live, your thoughts on Tamworth Borough Council services, how you think we should spend money collected from council tax and business rates and how we handle complaints.

The survey will take around 12 - 15 minutes to complete. You don’t need any specialist knowledge or experience of contacting us to take part, just a willingness to share your views.

At the end of the survey, you’ll be able to share your contact details if you want to be entered into a prize draw to win one of win one of five £30 gift voucher prizes to spend at a Tamworth store.

The results of the survey will be used to help councillors set the council’s budget (how money will be spent next year) and the priorities for the council in the future.

This survey is specifically for residents who live within the borough of Tamworth.

Take the survey and have your say before 23 October 2022.

 

Have your say on Tamworth Borough Council’s issues and options consultation for our Local Plan 2043

Residents, businesses, community and voluntary sector, investors and anyone with an interest in Tamworth is invited to have their say on Tamworth Borough Council’s issues and options consultation to inform the Local Plan 2043.

What is a local plan?
It’s a formal document that sets out all the planning policies and proposals for an area.

It looks at needs and opportunities in relation to housing and the economy, whilst making sure that we have sufficient community facilities and infrastructure to support the growing population.

It also contains policies to safeguard the environment, mitigate and adapt to climate change, and achieve well-designed neighbourhoods. Local Plans are an essential part of the planning system because they are the basis against which applications for planning permission are assessed.

Don’t we have a local plan?
We do already have a local plan, currently in place until 2031. However, the Government updates planning policy and more demographic information from the Census has just been released. So, to make sure our plan remains current and up to date, it is reviewed an updated regularly.

We’re now seeking your views on this issues and options document.
