RESIDENTS of an East Lancashire borough have been asked for their views on its future.

Blackburn with Darwen Council has launched an online survey to find out what they want and hope for.

All residents, businesses, volunteers and partner organisations are invited to say what matters most to them in a post-pandemic world.

The feedback gathered from the 'Residents' Survey' will be used to help develop a plan for the council and the borough for the next four years.

Leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, Clr Phil Riley, said: “Our borough has been through a lot over the last two years but I have seen our communities coming together to be stronger than ever.

"As we look to the future, may I take this opportunity to encourage all residents to have their say to shape the future of our borough going forward.

"Now is the time to say what matters, so that we can focus on how to meet those aspirations in the coming years”.

The link to the survey can be found at: and is open until June 24.

Those who take part in it will be entered into a prize draw with two £150 shopping vouchers, pantomime tickets and a year’s free gym membership as prizes.

Residents may also receive a phone call asking them to complete the survey over the phone. If the researcher calls at a time not convenient, they will happily phone back at a mutually convenient time.
