Residents have a week left to let Uttlesford District Council (UDC) know what its spending priorities should be for 2015/2016.

A questionnaire was launched by the local authority to gauge opinion on the matter and the deadline for this is Friday, July 25.

The results of the consultation will help design the budget for April 2015 to March 2016, which councillors will then be asked to approve in February next year.

Paper copies of the questionnaire are available from the council offices on London Road in Saffron Walden. The questionnaire is also available on the back page of the latest edition of Uttlesford Life.

Or, residents can fill in the form on the council website at
