RESIDENTS in Tendring are being urged to make their voice heard when a countywide survey hits their doormat.

Essex County Council is sending the questionnaire - which covers a wide range of issues - to about 12,000 households.

It will include questions on waste and recycling, volunteering, health, and general satisfaction of the services provided by councils in Essex.

Mick Page, leader of Tendring Council, said it is an opportunity for people to have their say.

“It really does help shape decisions and is a chance to let the authorities know your views on various subjects – most of which affect our everyday lives.”
