More than 3,000 residents in the Wokingham Borough are being invited to take part in the National Highways and Transport Survey, and will receive the paperwork in the post from 19 June onwards.
The annual survey, now in its tenth year, asks people for their views on local highways and transport services – from the condition of roads and footpaths to the quality of cycling facilities.
Their answers will be compared with those of residents in the other 111 local authorities signed up to the survey. The people receiving the questionnaire are chosen at random.
The survey helps councils assess how they are performing, and gives the public an opportunity to say which services they think their council should prioritise and improve.
The questionnaire can be completed on paper, or online, and takes about 20 minutes. Participation is voluntary.
“This survey helps everyone involved to identify the best ways of working and to spot national, regional and local trends,” said Cllr Chris Bowring, executive member for highways and transport at Wokingham Borough Council.
“This is about better understanding our residents’ views and working with them to deliver the best and most efficient policies.”
The survey is overseen by The National Highways and Transport (NHT) Network, but carried out by market research firm Ipsos MORI.
Last year’s survey results and more information is available on the NHT's website.
