Have say on ser­vice

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

WHIT­TLE­SEY res­i­dents are be­ing given chance to have their say on what is­sues Trad­ing Stan­dards of­fi­cers should be ad­dress­ing as a pri­or­ity in the area.

Trad­ing Stan­dards is seek­ing views from peo­ple across Cam­bridgeshire to find out what is­sues the pub­lic want them to tackle most.

The ser­vice has a broad re­mit – from tack­ling the sale of al­co­hol to un­der­age young­sters and con­fronting rogue traders, to check­ing petrol pumps are giv­ing the right mea­sure and en­sur­ing that food is la­belled cor­rectly.

They want to know which things are most im­por­tant to com­mu­ni­ties.

The ser­vice launched a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion in May which runs un­til July 21.

Ev­ery­one who re­sponds will be given the op­por­tu­nity to en­ter a prize draw, with the win­ner be­ing awarded £100 worth of Marks and Spencer vouch­ers.

Leon Livermore, head of Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil’s Trad­ing Stan­dards Ser­vice, said: ‘We look to de­liver ser­vices in a way that is re­spon­sive to lo­cal needs.

“Never be­fore have we un­der­taken such an ex­ten­sive sur­vey and I be­lieve that by do­ing so, we will gain a clear pic­ture of ex­actly what com­mu­ni­ties want from our Ser­vice.”

The sur­vey can be found by go­ing to www.cam­bridgeshire.gov.uk/con­sumer. Paper copies of the sur­vey are also avail­able from li­braries or by con­tact­ing the County Coun­cil on (01223) 715667.
