Over the next nine weeks, from mid June to August 2017, 2000 local residents will be invited to participate in a Residents’ Survey on behalf of East Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership.
The purpose of the Residents’ Survey is to gain an increased understanding of local priorities and views of residents on public service provision and satisfaction and to provide a comparison with surveys carried out in 2005, 2008, 2011 and 2014.
A pilot survey will be conducted on Tuesday 13 June 2017 to a limited number of participants and the full survey will be rolled out across all communities from Monday 19 June 2017 for 9 weeks ending Friday 18 August 2017.
Research company - Research Resource - have been appointed to undertake this work. All Research Resource interviewers will have photographic ID Badges for the duration of the survey period. They will carry an introductory letter detailing the nature of the work that they are undertaking on behalf of the Community Planning Partnership. People being interviewed will be invited to call either East Ayrshire Council on 01563 576075 or Research Resource on 0141 641 6410 to confirm that the interviewer is legitimate.
In addition to the survey, participants will be invited to join a Residents’ Panel of 1,000. Panel Members will play a key role in shaping the future of East Ayrshire's communities and influencing the decisions which are taken by local Community Planning Partners.
