Do you care about your Dursley Street?  We are looking for people who will spend 1 or 2 hours, with a camera and clipboard, to record the key practical issues on your street and to look at ways that the street can be improved – such as dropped kerbs, footpath resurfacing, getting rid of old street furniture, better bus stops, street lighting, or getting rid of overgrowing vegetation. As part of work to develop a Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) we need volunteers to help us audit the streets and footpaths in Dursley.  The audits will involve filling out a form and taking photos, noting pot holes, broken paving and any ill-positioned street furniture and raised curbs. 

The audit of Council's accounts for 2013-14 has been completed. Annual return. Conclusion of audit notice.
