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 major clerk surveys of town and parish councillors and clerks across the County.
The purpose of the surveys is to gain views on things such as working arrangements, 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 and councillors should have received an email inviting them to take part but, in case of any problems, the surveys can also be accessed directly here:
Clerk Survey: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/clerks_2017/
Councillor Survey: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/councillors_2017/
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 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
