Council seeks feedback on local services

COMMUNITIES, families, groups and individuals in Aberdeenshire are being asked for their views about the delivery and the future of important local services over the summer months.

The council’s lifelong learning and leisure service is currently undertaking one of its largest programmes of public engagement activity.

Staff want to speak to people face-to-face at events in the area until September, and have already been out and about in communities.

All age groups are being encouraged to tell them what they think about the future of learning and leisure in the area, with the branding: “Shout it out – we’re here to hear”.

Engagement activity will focus on a broad range of community services, including libraries, museums, sport and leisure, early years and community learning and development.

Education, learning and leisure committee chair, Councillor Isobel Davidson, said: “We want as many people as possible to make their views known, so that we can tailor the service to meet the needs of local people now and into the future.

“People can make a real difference to how services are delivered and support the council’s vision to ensure communities are vibrant, equitable and economically sustainable.”

While visitors to local events in all six areas of Aberdeenshire are encouraged to speak to Aberdeenshire Council staff in person, the consultation is available online link to
