Welcome to the latest edition of Your Norfolk, which highlights the wide range of ways in which we support our communities.
Since I last wrote to you, we have started to implement our business plan, Together, for Norfolk, which outlines our ambitions for the county and our specific plans to achieve them.
I’m keen to listen to you and understand what you think about key issues. That’s why we did a survey of more than 1,100 residents, which makes for interesting reading.
The headlines are encouraging – 88 per cent of you are satisfied with the local area as a place to live and 75 per cent are satisfied with how the council does things.
In terms of what could be better, you are clear that we need to improve roads (37 per cent), activities for teenagers (30 per cent) and affordable housing and renting (33 per cent).
You can read more in this edition – plus updates on a variety of initiatives, including our new early childhood and family service, our healthy ageing campaign and our latest must-see exhibitions.
