Local residents are invited to share their views on a healthy weight strategy aiming to help tackle the large numbers of people becoming overweight or obese.

The Cambridgeshire Healthy Weight Strategy comes at a time of significant and rising costs related to unhealthy weight. The costs of obesity include £5.1 billion to the NHS and other costs, such as social care and days of sickness, amount to £27 billion.

Communities and local organisations are being asked their opinions on a Strategy to reduce unhealthy weight locally. It calls for action to support children and adults achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Your responses will contribute to the final version of the Strategy and how it will be taken forward.

Please submit your views via the online survey.

A brief summary of findings will be published on the Cambridgeshire County Council website.
