Residents’ Survey 

The Residents’ Survey for 2021 opens on Sunday 3rd October and runs until midnight on Sunday 31st October.

If you live in the Malvern Hills district we would very much welcome your views on the local area, council services, and our responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. We use the results of the survey to shape our Five Year Plan and service delivery.

The survey will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, but progress can be saved so it can be completed in stages.

Have your say on the future of our town centres

Residents, businesses and visitors are being encouraged to have their say on the future of the town centres within the Malvern Hills District.

Malvern Hills District Council has now launched a consultation to gather views to guide its five town centre transformation plans. These will be for Barnards Green, Great Malvern, Malvern Link, Tenbury Wells and Upton upon Severn.

The council wants to know how people are using their high streets, what improvements are needed and what can be done to support businesses on the high street now and in the future.

To take part, people are being asked to visit Lets Talk Malvern Hills website where they can take part in a survey, place ideas on an online board and use an interactive map to show where improvements should go.

Paper copies of the consultation will also be available from Tourist Information Centres across the district.

Revised Statement of Principles Under the Gambling Act 2005

Malvern Hills District Council is seeking views on a draft revised Statement of Principle’s under the Gambling Act 2005. 

This important document sets out the principles the Council will apply when carrying out its functions under the Gambling Act 2005 and must be reviewed and republished at least every three years.

Having undertaken a comprehensive review of their Statement in 2018, and as there have been no significant changes to relevant legislation and guidance, the Council is not proposing to make any significant amendments to their current Statement of Principles when they republish the document for the next three year period.
