The County Council wants to make Cambridgeshire a great place to call home. In the face of increasingly challenging conditions for local government we have tried to protect frontline services, but inevitably we have had to change the way we do things and reduce some of what we do. In these circumstances talking to the public and listening to their opinions is more important than ever.
Through consultation, Cambridgeshire County Council will seek to understand what it is that members of the community value the most about our services. We acknowledge that consultation rarely throws up a single, coherent and unified opinion; we have to weigh the views expressed within the consultation process and then clearly feedback on why we have taken a particular course of action.
Opinions about the quality of our services are also fundamental to maintaining our standards. So we will regularly talk with service users about how we are doing.
