Households in Derbyshire could be in with a chance of winning up to £400 by taking part in a survey about roads and transport across the county.

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum of 4,500 Derbyshire residents in July asking their views on issues ranging from the condition of roads and pavements, to the quality of local bus services.

The survey is being carried out by independent market research experts Ipsos Mori and the same questions are also being sent to residents in 70 other areas nationwide.

Coun Dean Collins, deputy cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, said: “We are keen on putting communities at the heart of decision making and this survey will help us find out how we are performing and what we can improve.

“It will also let us compare our results with other local authorities and work together to make improvements in the future, so if anyone receives a survey please fill it in.”

This is the sixth year Ipsos Mori has run the national survey and the first that residents can fill in online, with a website link on the front page of the questionnaire.

Everyone who is sent the survey has the option to be entered into a free prize draw to win either £400, £200 or £100, funded by Ipsos Mori.

The closing date for returning completed the questionnaires is Friday 2nd August 2013.

Results are expected to be published in the early autumn.
