Win a Kindle Paperwhite – Complete Our 2 Minute Survey

Peepoc are in the process of creating a brand new website that we are calling ‘Community Campaigner’. It is being developed for the public to raise issues with their local politicians easily and transparently. But first we need your help by completing our survey…

We would appreciate 2 minutes (if that!) of your time to share your experiences of local issues and any contact you might have had with your local Councillors or MP, or to find out if you even know their names! Individual responses are anonymous, so there’s no need to worry.

Community Campaigner by Peepoc

Something exciting is coming…

Peepoc are in the process of researching a new website; for the moment we are calling it Community Campaigner. It will be a site designed to connect you (the general public) with your local politicians.

Should the speed limit be lowered in your local area? Is there a lack of street lightening? Is your council poor at recycling? Is it time your local park was refreshed? Is parking a nightmare in the city centre? You can use Community Campaigner to raise issues with all of your councillors and the MP without needing their contact details; Peepoc sorts that for you.

By sharing on social media you can invite your neighbours, colleagues, friends and family to get involved to support your debate and encourage the politicians to make a change. The more support you muster, the more seriously your issue will be taken.

Politicians will be more likely to respond to an issue raised on this site because of the transparency; they must be seen to address your ideas or problems thoroughly. Subtly adding pressure to them by making it visible to everyone and inviting their political colleagues and competition candidates will give your issue the best possible fighting chance at winning.

We are hosting a Resident’s Forum in Newbury, West Berkshire on Monday the 14th of December where we hope to meet some of our neighbours and ask them about their experiences of raising issues with their local representatives to help us ensure we build the best possible website. Email us at info@peepoc.com if you are interested in attending or for more information.

Keep an eye out on our blog for more information about this idea.

Do you standby on issues you care about?

I’m sure there are many of you reading this who have felt passionately about a local issue but done no more than have a rant on Facebook. Does that sound true? There are only a few of us who are prepared to grab a picket board and get down to your local town centre to stop the building of yet another coffee house. Peepoc is a way for you to get your opinion heard without having to commit a large amount of time and effort.

It takes seconds to sign up and create a poll, or a single second to click the vote button anonymously (without signing up).

The type of things that you might be interested in are:

  • Speed bumps and changes in the speed limit.
  • Number of potholes and damaged road surfaces.
  • Building of new homes.
  • The closing down of the post-office.
  • The ceasing of a major bus route.
  • Dog poop in the local park!
  • Not enough parking in the town centre.

These issues might not be burning in the national political landscape, but they might be a daily nightmare that you have to endure.

Get together with your neighbours and let Peepoc raise your voice so you can be heard by the people who control change. Log in to create or vote on a local poll now.
