We’re undertook a survey of our residents called the Viewpoint Survey. We wanted the views of our town and parish councils too so sent out a short questionnaire to them.

The survey is now closed and we are analysing the results.

East Devon is an outstanding place to live and we want to keep it that way whilst keeping our part of the council tax low. Our aim with the Viewpoint Surveys is to see what is going well and what needs to be done differently in future.

We sent similar questionnaires out in 2014. Views from these have made a difference. For example, in the last suite of surveys residents, town and parish councils and others told us they wanted to recycle cardboard and mixed plastics. This is now going to happen and the service will be rolled out across East Devon.
