New AVDC website - residents survey
The new website aims to offer the same clear and easy experience that our residents are used to on the internet now, such as online shopping or renewing your car tax online.
The council services will be available 24/7 on the go, compatible with mobiles, tablets and desktops. Making it more accessible at a time and place that is convenient for residents. We want to build a site that represents the needs of the local area and is the first point of call for residents across the Vale.
Our improved online presence will drive efficiency across the council allowing us keep to providing valuable services using automated and efficient processes. We are on track to launch the new website in August 2015 and continuously add and improve functionality in line with customer needs and AVDC's digital goals.
To enable us to create the best online experience on our website, we need the views of people that we, AVDC, serve across the Vale. Please take the time to answer our short online survey and help us shape the future of the site.

Aylesbury Vale Community Safety Partnership (CSP) - Emerging crimes survey
The partnership is a statutory group including local councils and the police, working together to reduce crime and disorder in Aylesbury Vale. Over the past three years it has focused its activity on creating safe and secure town centres, cutting anti-social behaviour and responding to other crimes local people are most concerned about.
A recent review of local crimes identified changes in the ways and types of crimes being committed, what is referred to as emerging crimes - by 'emerging' we mean things like cyber crimes, legal highs or child sexual exploitation.
This consultation seeks to find out how aware and informed local people feel about emerging crimes and how they might find out about them. Your responses are important in helping shape how the partnerships future action plans adapt in response to emerging crimes, alongside the more traditional crime prevention activities undertaken. Survey closes Friday 8 May 2015
Aylesbury Vale Times, AVDC's news magazine readership survey - survey now closed.
Our last readership survey was almost 18 months ago. We had some really positive responses and some constructive comments, for example, we're including more news from around the district, out of Aylesbury. Generally speaking, every item in the magazine has to be connected to our council services in some way and some also promote the local area.
We're striving to make this a magazine that's interesting to all residents, whilst including all the essential council news. With that in mind, we've introduced some new features in the last year or so, including Local Loves, Star Recycler and Your Council (features the changes we're making to manage Government budget cuts). We've also continued to include competitions which have proved popular.
Your views really do matter and your comments will help us plan future issues, so please let us know what you think of the current magazine.
Aylesbury Visitor Information Centre 2014 - summary of findings Aylesbury Visitor Information Centre (VIC) is located just off the Market Square in Aylesbury. It provides a range of services including providing local information, UK-wide holiday destination information and bookings, souvenirs, local gifts and coach ticket bookings. A survey was undertaken in the summer months of 2014; it's aim to help improve the service to visitors and residents, improve the commerciality of the centre and determine the barriers for the service. Findings from the survey are being utilised in the review of the centre. Key findings were:
• The three most important features of a good VIC location included: Town centre (68%), highly visible (55%) and accessible (53%)
• The two most important services the VIC offers include: Information about visiting local attraction (58%) and buying tickets for local events (48%)
• When asked about the gifts, souvenirs and cards available at the VIC, approximately 55% of respondents stated that they weren’t aware that the VIC sold them
• 49% of respondents said that they find it difficult to source gifts locally
