Surveys

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government where the first place survey pilots are to take place. (187643)

The new Place Survey will gather the views of the public about the work of councils and their partners. The survey is being piloted in each of the following local authorities:

Wychavon District Council;

Buckinghamshire County Council;

Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council; and

London Borough of Hackney.

These areas have been selected with the aim of ensuring that results from the pilot will be sensitive to differences between rural, urban, county and district level authorities so the pilot can inform successful delivery of the Place Survey across all areas of England.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will place in the Library a draft copy of the place survey. (187644)

I have placed a copy of the New Place Survey consultation document in the Library of the House.

The consultation ended on 8 February and we are currently analysing the responses to the consultation.
