Survey on public services delivery in rural areas
Rural stakeholders are being invited to participate in a survey of the way public services are delivered in the countryside.
The County Councils Network is undertaking the survey as part of an academic study examining how rural policy is made in England, and how effectively rural needs are taken into account.
John Courouble, senior policy officer at the County Councils Network, said: “Both the way public services are delivered and the way rural areas are represented are going through massive changes. The rise and fall of the target culture, the move to ever-greater consumer choice and marketisation, and aspirations around localism and the Big Society all have the potential to affect rural areas differently. Understanding this is the key to managing that change effectively.”
