Residents are being given the chance to win a £100 shopping voucher by taking part in a public consultation to find out how people feel about where they live.

Dudley Council will hold an eight-day roadshow, starting on Wednesday, which will allow residents to air their opinions.

The roadshow will take place in 19 locations across the borough. At each location there will be a camper van housing a video diary pod. Council staff and community volunteers will also be on hand to speak to residents.

The council will be entering everyone who takes part in the consultation into a prize draw to win a £100 shopping voucher. Results of the roadshow will be displayed at Dudley Town Hall on November 4.

The roadshow will be held on morning, afternoon and evening slots, beginning on Wednesday at Netherton Park in the morning at the Greave Road entrance. It will move on to Brewery Street in Kates Hill during the afternoon and Russells Hall, outside the shops on Middlepark Road, during the evening.

On Thursday July 6, the roadshow will start at on the community centre car park at Fens Pool before going to Cross Gate Road in Holly Hall during the afternoon and the estate office car park in Chapel Street, Brierley Hill, on the evening.

The next day it will start at Asda in Brierley Hill before going to the Dudley Fields estate in Wallows Road, Brierley Hill. The roadshow will be at the Upper Gornal fun day at the Vale Street Recreation Ground on July 8, before an afternoon roadshow the next day, on July 9 at Fatherless Barn in Halesowen.

Stone Street Square in Dudley town centre will be the host on the morning of July 10, followed by Summer Road in Wrens Nest and then the maisonettes at Wallbrook in Coseley. On July 11, the roadshow will be at the community centre in Wassell Road, Wollescote, Stourbridge, before heading to the Queensway shops in Pedmore and then the shops in New Farm Road.

The final day will see the roadshow start at Quarry Bank Community Centre, before going to Highfields in Halesowen at Church Croft/Ankerdine Court and then finally the Cross Walks shops in Lye.

Councillor Les Jones, cabinet member for housing, said:

“It’s very important that people in our communities have a voice about the things that matter to them.

“We usually do this by holding an annual tenants conference, but this year we wanted to try and do things a bit differently.

“Instead of asking residents to come to us, we are going to go out to them and visit lots of different estates all over the borough. Hopefully this will mean we are able to get the views of more people, and we would encourage people to come along and tell us what they think.”
