Residents invited to take part in national transport and roads survey

A sample of over 3,000 randomly selected residents in Cornwall are urged to give their views on transport in Cornwall.  The survey covers a number of different areas including footpaths and cycle ways, public transport and road maintenance.

If you’re not one of the 3,000 who received a questionnaire, you can still share your views online by visiting www.cornwall.gov.uk/highwayssurvey

Cornwall Council is one of 111 Local Authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey that will ask residents selected to take part exactly the same questions, whether they live in Cornwall, Coventry or Cumbria.  Their answers will be compared with the views of other members of the public across England and Scotland.

The independent survey, which is being run for the tenth year, is the largest collaboration between Local Authorities offering the opportunity to compare results, share in best practice and identify further opportunities to work together in the future.

The questionnaire has been sent to a minimum random sample of at least 3000 of Cornwall’s residents, followed by a reminder, with local and national results to be published in late-October 2019.  Since the survey is based on a sample, residents that receive a copy are being urged to take part. 

Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport Geoff Brown says: “We’re committed to listening to our residents and finding out what is most important to them so we can use our resources in the best possible way.  By joining in with this national survey, we can identify areas of best practice and spot national, regional and local trends. This is not about producing a league table to champion one geographical area over another, it is about understanding the views of our residents better and working together to deliver the most satisfactory yet efficient results for local residents.”

Residents who have received the questionnaire can complete the survey on line if they prefer, a short URL link will be printed on the front of the questionnaire and they will be asked to enter a code before completing it online.  The deadline for replying is 21 August 2019.

If you’re not one of the 3,000 who received a questionnaire, you can still share your views online by visiting www.cornwall.gov.uk/highwayssurvey .  The online survey runs until February 2020.
