RESIDENTS are being asked to share their views on highways and transport services by taking part in the largest collaborative survey between councils.

Bracknell Forest Council is one of 111 local authorities to sign up to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

The council believe it is an important way of understanding what residents transport and road priorities are and where improvements can be made.

All the answers residents give will be compared with the views of other members of the public across England and Scotland.

Councillor Chris Turrell, executive member for planning and transport, said: “I’d like to encourage residents to complete the survey if they are part of the sample.

“The results are important to us and will enable the council to find out what people think about these important services. It also gives Bracknell Forest residents an opportunity to say which services they think the council should prioritise and improve.”

The survey has been running for 10 years and is the largest collaboration between councils and means they can compare results, share best practice and look at how to work together in the future.

Wayne Scott, the council’s traffic manager, said: “There are very clear benefits to conducting a public survey in this way as it enables everyone involved to 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 residents’ views better and working together to provide the most satisfactory yet efficient outcomes for local residents.”

The questionnaire will be sent to at least 4,000 of the borough’s residents on June 10
