Derbyshire County Council want your views on the roads

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.

A random sample of at least 4,500 residents will be sent the questionnaire during June and July asking their views on issues ranging from the condition of roads and pavements provided by Derbyshire County Council, 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 being sent to residents in around 70 other areas across the country.

Councillor Simon Spencer, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “Improving Derbyshire’s roads is at the top of our agenda.

“If you’re sent the survey, please take the time to fill it in. Your views will help show us how well we’re doing, where we need to improve and which services you want us to prioritise.

“We’ll also be able to compare our results with other councils taking part across the country so that we can share ideas and ways of working.”

This is the fourth year Mori has run the national survey.

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

The closing date for returning completed questionnaires is 23rd July, with results are expected to be published in September.
