Quality of Life survey launched


What is it like to live in Cheshire East?

That’s one of the questions posed in the Council’s 2010 Quality of Life survey, which is landing on thousands of doorsteps throughout the area.

The questionnaire, which is going out to 3,700 households, asks residents for opinions about aspects of quality of life, including housing, health services and community safety.

Results will show whether Cheshire East Council is dealing with issues that concern and matter to local people.

As this is the first Quality of Life survey undertaken by Cheshire East, it will be important in planning future services.

The Council is also keen to understand which services are most important to residents to help it decide how it can reduce its budget in the light of cuts in revenue support grant from central government.

It will also be used to see how Cheshire East is doing at delivering the services that matter most to residents and to decide what needs to be done differently in the future.

Councillor David Brown, Cabinet member with responsibility for performance and capacity, said: “Cheshire East is already a great place to live. But we want to gauge the views of our residents in this very important survey as it will give us useful information in our quest to keep it that way.

“To ensure the findings are a true reflection of public opinion it is important to get as high a response as possible so I do hope the recipients will participate. Results will be available in the New Year on the Council’s website.”

Residents are asked to complete and return it in the prepaid envelope provided by November 30. Anybody who doesn’t receive a survey can complete it online at

Questionnaire recipients who have any questions or concerns about the survey should contact market research company Ipsos MORI on 0161 240 2401.
