Residents’ telephone survey

We are conducting a residents’ telephone survey with a sample of 1,000 residents from across Dacorum. The survey asks residents for their views on local services and various aspects of life in their local area. The consultation period will run through to the middle/end of September 2022.

We have commissioned Opinion Research Services (ORS), an independent social research company, to conduct the telephone interviews for this survey. To ensure a cross section of the borough's population is represented, ORS uses a randomly selected sample of addresses and landlines provided from the telephone exchanges, as well as purchasing lists from other commercially available sources. We have not provided any customer contact details for this research.

The sample is set to quota in terms of age, gender, working status and ethnicity to ensure the achieved sample is representative of Dacorum's population.

The telephone number ORS is using for this survey is 01462 886375.

Why we are consulting

We want to know how you feel about your local area and how you feel we are doing in delivering local services.

Give us your views

If ORS contacts you, please take the time to take part in the survey. Your views and opinions on your local area and on the services we provide are important to us.

Your input and time in this research will be greatly appreciated.

Extension of Article 4 Directions in key employment areas

Article 4 Directions are in place in a number of key employment areas in Dacorum. This reintroduced the need for planning permission for the changes of use from office and other uses to houses or flats. This protection is set to end on Monday 1 August 2022.

We are now extending that protection beyond 1 August 2022. The new Directions came into force on Friday 15 July 2022 and we're now inviting comments on them. These can be made until 11.59pm on Friday 2 September 2022.
