Ask Cardiff! The residents survey 2016

Bin collections getting you down? Sick of cycling on lanes that are more pothole than path?

Well, ‘Ask Cardiff’ – the annual ‘have a moan at the council and remain unsure about whether they actually do anything about it’ consultation is open to the public NOW. It closes on 11 September.

And in all seriousness, if you give any amount of a hoot about “what Cardiff does for you”, then make yourself a cuppa and 15 minutes to fill this thing in.

Access the 2016 Ask Cardiff survey.

This year they’re even offering a whole bunch of prizes for people who take part! We’re talking afternoon teas, white water rafting, and entry to the Dr Who Experience and Techniquest, amongst other things …

So go fill it in! And send it to everyone you know. The only way things will change are if we all complain about them enough, you know …
