Today we ask our readers to tell us what they love about Suffolk, and what they think could make it even better.
We conducted our last Suffolk Says survey in 2015, and more than 1,200 people took part.
We hope to get another terrific response – you can fill out the survey on this page.
It covers issues ranging from health and education, to crime and transport. It also asks about people’s shopping habits, and how business is faring.
Last time, the results showed people felt the county was safe, has reasonable health facilities and has many attractive features that make it a good place to live.

But they wanted to see more affordable homes, and more police attention given to anti-social behaviour.
Respondents rated the quality of the county’s transport infrastructure as the most pressing issue for Suffolk – both road and rail provoked keen responses.

In 2015, a third of respondents felt that Suffolk’s roads were poor or very poor while less than 20% thought they were good or excellent.
Our last survey was held shortly before the general election, and at that time the most important single issue for people was the economy.
In terms of retail, when asked where people did their non-food shopping, there was an equal split between large towns, out-of-town centres and online.
We look forward to seeing how the results compare in all of those categories three years on.
We will then send the survey results to the county council, district and boroughs, as well as every MP.
The findings will also be sent to other civic leaders and decision makers so they can take into account the concerns of the people of Suffolk.
