Working to strengthen local

Town and Parish Councillor and Clerk Surveys 2017

01 February 2017

Cambridgeshire ACRE, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Association of Local Councils and the Cambridgeshire branch of the Society of Local Council Clerks are working together to undertake a survey of all town and parish council councillors and clerks across the County.

The purpose of the surveys is to gain views on things such as training, support, communications and the Local Council Award Scheme. The information collected will allow the survey organisers to understand how Town and Parish Councils want them to provide services in future. The results will inform an Action Plan for future work with Town and Parish Councils.

All clerks have received a link to the online surveys and have been asked to share with the councillors they work with. The surveys can also be access directly here:

Surveys should be completed by 17 March 2017. Results reports will be prepared once the surveys close and these will be shared with all parish councils in due course.

Any queries concerning the surveys should be directed to Diane Bayliss, Town and Parish Council Development Officer on 01353 865040 or email
