Local people are being asked for their views on Bury’s highways and transport services – from the condition of roads and footpaths to the quality of cycling facilities.

Their answers will be compared with the views of other members of the public across England and Scotland, thanks to the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey.

Bury is one of 112 councils to sign up to a standardised survey that will ask members of the public exactly the same questions, whether they live in Bury, Bath or Brighton. This is the second year that Bury has participated and will, therefore, be able to compare responses to last year’s results.

The 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 will be sent to a minimum random sample of at least 3,300 Bury residents from 19 June, followed by a reminder, with local and national results to be published in mid-October 2017. Since the survey is based on a sample, residents who receive a copy are being urged to take part.

Residents who receive the questionnaire can complete the survey online 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.

Councillor Alan Quinn, cabinet member for the environment, said: “The results will enable us to find out what people in Bury think about these important services, and which services we should prioritise and improve, so we can deliver the most satisfactory yet efficient results for local residents.”
