People can play their part in future improvements and have their say on Staffordshire’s road network through a survey issued this week.
The National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey will be issued to a sample of 3,300 Staffordshire residents. The survey results will help councils to share expertise, look at opportunities to work together and get the best value for money for residents. Results will be published in October this year. The findings will inform the county council about what people think and enable it to assess how it is performing, where it needs to prioritise and how it can improve.
A short URL will be printed on the front of the questionnaire, so those who receive a survey can complete the paper version or alternatively online.
The survey is being carried out on behalf of the participating councils by market research specialist Ipsos MORI. It is the tenth year the survey has been carried out, with 112 councils across the country with highways responsibilities taking part.
Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said: “This survey will enable people to have their say on our highways operations and also inform us about the views and priorities of our residents. The same survey is being used nationwide which means we can spot trends, share expertise and work more collaboratively where appropriate. In addition, a standard survey across the country means all councils participating get better value for money. I’d urge people who receive a form to complete one as their views are valuable to us and can help shape future decision making.”
