Inverclyde Community

Dear Inverclyde Resident

Our Place Our Future

Would you like to join the new Inverclyde conversation, Our Place Our Future, and have your say about issues that affect you locally?

Yes! Then the Inverclyde Alliance is inviting you to take part in the Our Place Our Future survey - let us know what you would like to see happen in your local community and how you can help make it a reality.

The survey will let us gather your opinion on a wide range of issues important and relevant to you – from traffic, parking, streets and spaces, to housing, community and local amenities. You can complete the survey online at:

Closing date is Friday 30 June 2017 at 5pm.

We welcome your input. Please take some time to answer the questions below rating your answers by circling the number between 1 and 7 that best fits, with 1 being ‘not at all’, 4 being neither one way or the other and 7 being ‘completely satisfied.’ Add any comments you think might be useful in helping us better understand your answers.
