Your Borough, Your Future, Your Views matter

Posted on:

Dudley Council is seeking people’s view on climate change and their thoughts on what they and the council can do to reduce the impacts of climate change.

Roadshows are happening across the borough for a second week for people to share their thoughts about how they and the council can work together to tackle climate change.

The Your Borough, Your Future survey launched earlier this week asking for residents’ views on what they think the council should be doing and what they, as individuals, would consider doing to prepare for the challenges faced today and into the future.

Next week roadshows will be at the following places across the borough for people to find out more and complete the survey. There will also be a hot composter on display along with a range of bins currently in use. These are:

• Monday 7 November: Dudley Market Place and Churchill Precinct, 10am-3pm
• Tuesday 8 November: Brierley Hill Asda Car Park and Indoor Market, 10am-3pm
• Wednesday 9 November: Stourbridge Crown Square and Ryemarket, 10am-3pm
• Thursday 10 November: Halesowen Lower Somer Square and Cornbow Shopping Centre, 9am-5pm
• Friday 11 November: Merry Hill (inside and outside by M&S/Argos), 10am-3pm

The survey explores people’s views on their priorities and where they feel changes can be made to council services to reduce the carbon impact, such as improving recycling services in a cost-effective way, reducing the amount of waste that goes into the incinerator and exploring the use of alternative fuels for vehicles.

It also asks what changes to daily life residents are willing to make.

A YouTube video showing people how they can make a difference locally and globally is available on the council’s YouTube channel.

There’s also a chance for children to take part in a couple of fun quizzes on climate change and recycling.

Councillor Rob Clinton, cabinet member responsible for climate change, said:

We’ve had a decent turn out at all of our roadshows so far, with lots of people asking questions about what they and we can do to tackle climate change.
People who can’t attend the roadshows can watch our YouTube video or take part in our online survey. Children can have fun testing their knowledge with two fun quizzes about climate change and recycling.
We want to find out and understand what’s working for residents now and how we can make changes for the future.

The survey runs until November 18 and responses will provide valuable insight and help shape the council’s climate action plan.

It can be completed online.

Paper copies of the survey will be available on request in libraries across the borough. People are to return the paper copies to the library and they will be collected.


Parents and carers can help their local primary school win a hot composter by taking part in the survey. The primary school which completes the most surveys will win the hot composter.
