On Monday 13 May, 2019, Renfrewshire Council launched its “Our Renfrewshire” Community Survey. The survey is designed to start a conversation about the values that are most important to local people and the values and behaviours that they expect from their council.

The survey, which includes 15 simple questions, is intended to change the way the council works. Everyone who lives, works or studies in Renfrewshire is invited to take part in it.

More details about the survey can be found here.
