Future council services survey

What’s it all about?

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) has announced proposals to scrap every borough and district council, including Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC), in favour of a unitary council. This single enlarged council would be responsible for the decision making in the whole of Leicestershire and a town council could be introduced in Hinckley which would assist with some local services. 

LCC's proposals would mean that local services which we provide, such as housing, planning, environmental protection, local events, and bin collections could be lost and the maintenance of parks and open spaces would fall to the new Hinckley town council.

We would like to know what you think about these proposals.

Who can take part

Anyone living in the borough of Hinckley & Bosworth can complete the survey. This is a short survey and your answers are anonymous.

Our Hinckley town council survey is advertised in the Borough Bulletin which is sent to every household, but we would like every member of the borough to complete the survey once.
