Renfrewshire Council

Leader's Blog: Have your say in the 'Our Renfrewshire' survey before it closes on Friday

More than 1,500 people have already taken part in the 'Our Renfrewshire' community survey but, with less than a week to go until it closes, time is running out to get involved and have your say.

We launched the survey because we want to know what matters most to you, what you value and the values and behaviours that you expect from your council.

As a council we deliver lots of important public services including waste and recycling collections, maintenance for local roads, schools and homes, as well as the provision of local education services and care for the most vulnerable. We want to transform the way we work and we need your views to help shape this.

The feedback we receive from you by taking part in the survey will be used to help develop a new set of values for the council and will transform the way we work and communicate with you in future. By values, we mean the guiding principles that will become the foundation of our organisation.

We need your help to understand what matters most to you, how we can make it easier for you to connect with the council and how we can strengthen our relationship with communities and partners.

The survey, which includes a short set of simple questions, is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Renfrewshire. I would urge everyone to take part and have their say before it closes this Friday (7 June). The survey is quick and easy to complete and your contribution will make a big difference.

This is your opportunity to have your say and help shape the way we work together to make sure Renfrewshire continues to be a great place to live, work and study.

If you would like to take part, visit If you need some help to go online, ask about 'Our Renfrewshire' in any of our libraries.
