People living in the Wokingham Borough are being asked their views on local highways and transport – from the condition of roads and footpaths to the quality of cycling facilities and local bus services.
Their answers will be compared with those from people across England and parts of Scotland as part of the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction Survey.
Wokingham Borough Council is one of 106 local authorities signed up to this survey, which asks people exactly the same questions wherever they live.
The survey, now in its ninth year, gives councils the chance to compare results, share best practice and identity more ways to work together in the future.
The questionnaire is being sent to an anonymous sample of some 3,300 Wokingham Borough’s residents from 27 June onwards, with local and national results due to be published mid-October. As the survey is based on a sample, people receiving it are urged to complete it.
The printed survey is 12 pages long, and should take 20 minutes to complete. There is the option to complete the questionnaire online if people prefer, via a URL link printed on the front of the survey as well as inputting a code also on the paperwork.
“The results will help us find out what our residents think about these important services. This will give us one tool to assess how we’re performing. It’s also an important opportunity for our residents to say which services they think we should prioritise, and improve,” said Cllr Malcolm Richards, executive member for highways and transport.
