The public engagement was the biggest ever undertaken by Nottinghamshire County Council and the feedback will be central to its ambitious new Council Plan that will be launched later this autumn.

Coun Ben Bradley MP, leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “The response to the Big Notts Survey has been incredible and I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey and for contributing to improving the future for our county.
