Mid Ulster District Council is asking residents to give their views on current leisure provision and participate in a new survey launched today that seeks feedback from user and non-users of leisure facilities across the Council area.
In line with the Council’s customer-focussed values, the survey aims to gauge levels of participation and usage at its current leisure and recreation centres and sports arenas in Cookstown, Magherafelt, Maghera, and Tobermore.
It will also look at trends in leisure participation, how best to communicate with users and non-users of the service, and look for evidence of demand for the facilities mix of services, as well as what people would like to see in the future.
Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Cllr Kim Ashton encouraged the public to participate, saying,
“To be at the heart of our community, people are at the centre of what we do. The Council is committed to designing and delivering its services around those accessing them, and completing the survey which we have launched today gives the people of Mid Ulster a vital say in how we move forward in delivering leisure services that fully and completely represent their needs.
“I would encourage everyone to take the opportunity to give feedback, whether you are a past or current user of our facilities, or someone who has never used any of our leisure or recreation centres or sports arenas. “
To take part the public can fill in an online survey that is available from Monday 21st May via the Council website at www.midulstercouncil.org/leisuresurvey. Hard copies of the survey will also be available at each Council leisure facility, and at local libraries.
The closing date for online and hard copy returns is Friday 15th June, and completed hard copy surveys can be returned to any Council leisure centre or sports arena, or any main Council office (situated in Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt).
All information gained from surveys will remain confidential and will be handled according to GDPR principles. Residents are under no obligation to take part. People can find out more by contacting the Council’s Marketing and Communications team on 03000 132 132.
