Thousands Have Their Say at Council Roadshows

Ask Dorset Roadshow

6:49am 13th August 2014
(Updated 5:03pm 13th August 2014)

More than 6,000 people have now told Dorset County Council what they think their spending priorities should be.

The responses have come as part of the Ask Dorset Road Shows.

Senior Council Execs have been out on the streets listening to people's concerns as part of an unprecedented public consultation exercise.

We asked Anne Grey from Dorset County Council what people have been talking about the most;

"The main topic so far has been the condition of the roads.  Obviously is something you come across every day.  If you walk out of your door and there's a pothole in front of you - that's going to be at the front of your mind."

"Helping older people to live independently in their own homes is a big issue as well as rural buses and transport."

Anne told Wessex FM they'll use the feedback to make some tough decisions.

"It's not just a case of trying to cut services and stop offering things it's to make sure we do things better and offer our services more efficiently. We do need to prioritise which is why we have gone out now and at least done a temperature check on what are the top issues."

The roadshows have now ended but there's still a chance to have your say at Dorset For You.
