Residents to have their say on HBBC council services

Residents to have their say on HBBC council services

People living in the Hinckley & Bosworth area are being asked for their opinion on the services they receive from the Borough Council.

The survey is carried out annually with regular questions on satisfaction to allow the council to monitor trends over time.

This year the diverse range of topics residents are being asked about include satisfaction with service delivery and value for money, how well informed residents are, personal safety in the local area, housing, the local economy and Hinckley market. More »

Anyone who wishes to take part can complete an online survey at or contact the council on 01455 255795 for a paper copy. Members of the council's Citizens' Panel and people living at selected addresses across the borough will also be asked for their views to try to ensure the views are as representative as possible.

The survey is open until Friday 22 February 2019 and results will be published later this year.

Executive Member for Corporate and Member Services at the Borough Council, Cllr Chris Ladkin said: "Understanding the views of residents is key when assessing our effectiveness as a council. I would encourage residents to fill in this questionnaire, for the more responses we get, the more we can be sure we are focusing on the issues local people feel are most important to them." » Less

The Borough Council is phasing in new ticket machines at its pay-and-display car parks across Hinckley town centre.

New machines are being installed in the Leisure Centre, St Mary's Road and Church Walk car parks this month with others introduced gradually over the new few months.

The new pay-and-display machines will provide a variety of quick and simple ways for people to pay for their parking.

For the first time car park users can look forward to not having to find loose change as the new machines will accept contactless payment and credit and debit cards as well as cash. More »

Parking charges remain the same at 60 pence for up to an hour and £2.00 for three hours in short stay car parks and £2.50 for over five hours in long stay car parks. For more information about parking charges across the town go to
