A survey to see how Daventry District Council uses ‘plain English’ in its communications with residents aims to find out how clear and easy it is.

A task panel of councillors scrutinising the council’s formal correspondence with residents is encouraging people to give their views to discover where improvements can be made.

The survey is now available for Daventry district residents to complete at DDC’s consultation site, people can also complete a survey in the council’s reception in Lodge Road.

Chairman of the task panel, Cllr Wendy Randall, said: “Clear communication with residents in the district is of vital importance and this scrutiny review is about ensuring that our correspondence with people is clear and easy to understand.

“A survey asking what people think about our formal correspondence is available for people to complete online or in the council’s reception.

“I would encourage as many people as possible in the Daventry district to have their say.”
