What issues do you have in your community ? Have Your Say About your local Ward Priorities

13 Feb

North Sheffield

We would like to know what people living in Sheffield feel should be the priorities for the wards they live in.

ward-priority

Each year every ward in Sheffield produces a list of three or four Ward Priorities; this is your opportunity as a local resident to have your say about what they should be for your neighbourhood. The ward priorities contribute to discussions with partners on local activity so you can see from them what local councillors and partners are working towards in your area. Councillors also use the ward priorities to help them decide how they allocate ward pot money to local groups and services in the ward.

Please follow the link below to fill in the short online questionnaire; although it shouldn’t take more than about five minutes there is space to add additional comments if you want to spend more time giving a detailed response.
