Two more weeks to have say on environment

More than 1500 residents have already completed West Oxfordshire District Council's survey on the environment and there is still until Friday 28th September for more local people to have a say.
Completed surveys will be entered into a prize draw with a chance of winning an energy efficient kitchen appliance worth up to 300.

Over 7000 postal surveys were sent out in August giving residents of West Oxfordshire the opportunity to comment on a variety of subjects including climate change, waste and recycling and how clean and safe they think their district is.

"I am encouraged by the response to date but realise that people are busy at the end of the holiday period and may not yet have had time to complete the questionnaire," says Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for the Environment.
"Because it is very important to us that as many people as possible are given a chance to state their views, we have extended the deadline."
"The information gathered will help us monitor and improve the services we provide."

People who have received the postal survey but have yet to reply are now asked to complete it and return it in the Freepost envelope supplied as soon as they can but certainly no later than 28th September.
Anyone who has not received a postal questionnaire can get involved simply by logging on to the Council's website www.westoxon.gov.uk/environment and completing the survey on line.

Residents unable to access the internet can contact the Council on 01993 861020 to ask for a paper copy of the survey to be sent out to them.
The survey results will be published in due course.
