The public’s views on Rotherham's highways and transport services are once again being sought as part of a national survey.

Rotherham Council is one of 86 local authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction Survey that will ask the public exactly the same questions - whether they live in Rotherham, Ribble Valley or Rossendale.

The survey, which is being run for the eighth 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 will be sent to a minimum random sample of 3,300 Rotherham residents followed by a reminder, with local and national results to be published in early October.  Since the survey is based on a sample, residents that receive a copy are being urged to take part.

Residents that receive 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 required to enter a code before completing the questionnaire.

Cllr Kath Sims, Advisory Cabinet Member for Waste, Roads and Enforcement for the Council, encouraged anyone who receives the survey to complete it. She added: "The views of the public about our highways and transport network is very important to us and will help us to prioritise and improve and to deliver the best service we can to our local residents."
