There's still time for residents to have their say about what they think of life in Wolverhampton and their hopes and fears for the future.

People across the city are being invited to share their views on a wide range of subjects through the city's 2013 Residents Opinion Survey - and their responses will help shape council and partnership services.

People will be asked what most concerns them about living in Wolverhampton, how safe they feel and how satisfied they are with their local area and the city as a whole.

They will also be invited to comment on whether the council is doing a good job or not, and on the standard of services it offers, and whether they feel their voice is being heard in the decision making process.

Other questions cover subjects ranging from health and wellbeing to how families are coping financially in the current economic climate. People will also be invited to share their hopes and fears, both for themselves and their city, in the years ahead.

People can complete the Residents Opinion Survey online by logging on to Type=links;Linkid=2137;Title=Wolverhampton Residents' Opinion Survey 2013;Target=_blank;. In addition, postal surveys have been sent to 6,000 randomly-selected households, while Local Neighbourhood Partnerships and special interest groups are also being invited to complete surveys.

All surveys must be completed by Monday 19 August, 2013.

Councillor Roger Lawrence, Leader of Wolverhampton City Council, said: "The Residents Opinion Survey is a hugely important piece of work which gives the city council vital information about a wide range of subjects.

"It is one of the main ways in which the council can get a feel for what our residents think about a wide range of issues, including the services we provide and the city itself. This in turn helps us when we are planning and delivering services.

"I'd encourage everyone who has an interest in the development of Wolverhampton to complete this year's survey. It should only take a few minutes of their time but their responses could have a lasting impact on the future of our city."
