A CONSULTATION into how Suffolk residents would like the county to be in the future is underway.

Between now and July 13, people can log on to special internet questionnaire and comment on the priorities for the county around crime, safety, employment, education, housing, health, recreation, the environment and communities.

As well as the online survey, there will be 12 focus groups to focus on the priorities specific to each area.

The community strategy will reflect the changing priorities and ambitions for Suffolk over the next 20 years.

Clare Euston, chairman of the Suffolk Strategic Partnership said: “We want the public to tell us what they want Suffolk to look like in the next 20 years and what the important issues are for them.

“The strategy will build on the past achievements in the county and will set out our common vision for Suffolk.”
