Cambridge City Council

Residents asked what they would do to make Cambridge a better place to live, work and spend leisure time in

14 February 2023

Where you live, what makes your daily life safe, happy and healthy?
What do you like about where you live? What do you dislike?
What would you do to make it a better place to live, work and spend leisure time in?


CAMBRIDGE City Council is asking people living in Cambridge to complete a short survey to share their thoughts on what they like or dislike about where they live; what makes them feel safe, happy and healthy; and what they would do to make it a better place to live, work and spend leisure time in.

The short survey will be running from 14 February until 26 March along with a series of conversations with local communities and residents. All of the feedback received will help build a picture of residents’ priorities for the future of Cambridge to ensure it continues to be a great place to live and work.

Find out more information online or get involved. Alternatively, you can contact 01223 457400 to request a hard copy of the survey.

The short survey explores:

  • What things make daily life safe, happy and healthy
  • What people like about Cambridge, and what would make it an even better place to live, work and play.

Everyone who takes part in the survey will be able to opt in to be entered into a draw to win a £100 Love Cambridge voucher.

The feedback from residents will be published on the council’s website in May 2023.

Cllr Mike Davey, Executive Councillor for Strategy, Resources and Transformation, said: “We are making significant improvements to the council to build a better, more efficient and sustainable organisation. We need to make sure we’re fit for the future, work with partners and prioritise the services people want and need.

“To make sure we can achieve this, we’re putting residents at the heart of the conversation. We’re asking them to share feedback with us and help us to define our future role in ensuring the city continues to be a great place to live and work. It is all about ensuring we hear from the local community about what is important to them.”

The work is part of the council’s transformation programme, Our Cambridge, which aims to create a more modern and community-focused council delivering services through better use of technology and new ways of working. The programme will also contribute to required savings.

As part of Our Cambridge, the council will work more closely with charities, businesses and other public sector organisations, to find new ways to share resources and work together, using lessons learned in recent years, including during the pandemic.
