Greenwich Council says it wants residents to help set its priorities

Greenwich Council is asking residents to set its priorities for the future by filling in a survey, The Big Conversation.

The town hall says the results of the survey will be used to inform its “recovery and renewal plan”, which will guide its plans for the future.

Residents are asked to pick five most important and five most important priorities, to rank the challenges facing what the council calls “Royal Greenwich”, and also whether they feel part of their community.

Options include things that have not been prioritised in recent years – such as parks, public spaces, footpaths and cycle paths – as well as traditional priorities such as employment, training and childcare.

The survey comes a few months ahead the council elections in May.

Council leader Danny Thorpe said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who lives, works or studies in the borough to have their say on important changes. We are asking people about a range of topics, from climate change and housing to crime and transport. The survey will take just five minutes of your time and completing it will make a valuable impact on future decisions.”

The survey is at until 19 January.
