Sudbury Labour Councillors work to secure community funding to improve green spaces and deal with street issues for Farm Avenue residents

Sudbury’s Labour Councillors have written a joint letter to all Farm Avenue residents, following up on a range of issues residents raised when we knocked on their doors late last year and updating them on our work to secure community funding to improve green areas on the street.

This is just the start, and we’ll be contacting residents door-to-door throughout the ward in the year ahead about the issues that matter to them; and proactively following-up with letters and surveys to local residents.

In the months ahead, Sudbury’s Labour Councillors will going door-to-door on streets throughout the ward, having much more personalised conversations with residents about the local issues happening right near them.

Straight afterwards, we’ll then be getting to work taking people’s concerns directly to the Council, and working to improve their area – including by supporting community bids to improve the area. Once we’ve made good progress, we’ll be following up with a letter to every resident and a survey to seek their views on any further issues they have.

Late last year, we kicked things off by knocking on doors in Farm Avenue, when we canvassed to dozens of local people about ways we could improve their street. We’ve just made good on a number of commitments we made to them around improving the area’s green spaces, working to tackle litter and combating anti-social behaviour, and have written back to residents with the following letter:


We see this as just the start of a long process of better engagement with local residents, where we’ll be proactively reaching out to people throughout our ward to make it as easy as possible for you to raise concerns with your local representatives.

We’ll be coming down your street as soon as possible, but don’t hesitate to give us a call, drop us an email or pop into one of our surgeries if you have any burning concerns you want dealt with now.
