Leader of Rochford District Council, Cllr Simon Wootton, said:

“We know that the coming year is going to be a very challenging time for all of us. That is why we as a Council are focused even more on ensuring we are getting the best value for the money we spend and that we are responding to the needs and priorities of our residents and local businesses.

“Please take a few minutes to take part in our 2022/23 Budget Survey. This is a real chance to influence how the council allocates its resources, inform us of the services you most value, and help shape the future direction for our district.”
