Saltwell Community Voting Box comes to an end…

Over June, July and August the Saltwell Community Voting Box was placed in locations along and around Saltwell Rd to find out what the people of Saltwell thought about living in the area and to try and understand how it could be improved. The box had varying degrees of success at the different locations but it was still interesting to see what people thought.

The box threw up some interesting results which I hope to share with people soon and find out what the next step is and how we as a community can work on improving the place we live.

The voting box maybe finished for now in Saltwell, but if you have any questions or thoughts about it or a place you would like to see it then please get in touch.
