As you may know from our regular newsletters and websites, I, along with Cllr Steve Williams and Cllr Simon Mountney are helping residents on some of the issues in our local community. Me, Steve and Simon think it’s really important that we work on all the issues that matter to our area
At the end of this post is a brief online survey to ask for your views on your neighbourhood and wider issues – such as tackling welfare abuse, supporting pensioners and helping children and families.
Later this month, the Council’s budget will be voted on. The new Conservative-led Council is also working hard to freeze your Council Tax this year. Unlike some other councils, Wirral is reducing what is spent on administration while protecting spending on important services that we all rely on.
As well as getting the Council’s finances in order, we must also help our local economy to recover from the country’s debt crisis. We are expanding the apprenticeship programme and have appointed a ‘Jobs Commission’. This will look at the ways in which the Council can support existing employers and new jobs.
I hope you will spare a few minutes to tell us your views. The Leader of the Council has also asked for your permission to see your reply – if you agree, simply tick the box at the start of the survey. To take part in the survey simply click HERE
