Have say on service
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.
