What Do Think About Countryside Sites Operated by CBC?

  • Central Bedfordshire Council is undertaking an online survey about their countryside sites and is asking residents and users for their views. This is your chance to have your say on countryside sites across Central Bedfordshire.

The council wants to provide countryside sites that are great places for the local community to enjoy, exercise, relax, and play, so they are asking the public to feedback what they think about the sites.

The survey covers topics around cleanliness and maintenance of this site, wildlife and conservation projects and the range of visitor facilities and/or events that are available.

The council is asking anyone that has visited one of their sites to complete the survey and to tell them their thoughts about how it could be improved.

The survey will take no longer than five minutes to complete and your feedback will help the council manage the sites to meet the needs of the community. 

Councillor Ian Dalgarno, the Executive Member for Community Services for Central Bedfordshire Council, said, “We want to offer countryside sites that are great places for the local community to relax, meet friends, exercise or simply escape for a short time.”

“We are seeking the views of the residents and users to make sure our sites are fit for the future. This survey is a really good opportunity for residents and users to have their say about what they think of the facilities, cleanliness of the sites and what they feel could be improved upon.”

  • The survey is open from 16 October - 13 November 2020
