The survey, which is open to anyone living in the borough, covers a number of issues including satisfaction levels about services, questions about Thompson Park and the customer service the council provides, anti-social behavior issues, and the three best and worst things about Burnley.

The events will also give residents the opportunity to raise issues and areas of concern, as well as finding out more about what is happening to tackle local problems.
