Local transport review: Public Consultation Extended
Since Surrey County Council launched its local transport review public consultation on 8 October, it has received over 2,400 responses. The response so far has been overwhelming, with residents and stakeholders still getting in touch to request copies of the questionnaire or complete it online. In light of the high level of interest, the Council we has extended the deadline for completing the questionnaire from Wednesday 14 January 2015 to Monday 2 February 2015. Surrey is also announcing three days of community events, taking a roving bus to Surrey towns to promote the consultation and give residents the chance to have their say in person. Residents can complete the short consultation questionnaire online or pick up a paper copy from local council offices and libraries. To request a copy of the questionnaire sent straight to their door, including large print and easy read formats, residents can also call 0300 200 1003. On 8, 9 and 10 January our roving bus will be out and about, giving residents the chance to pick up a copy of the questionnaire and talk face to face with council officers about the review and which services matter most to them. Full details of these events, can be found
at surreycc.gov.uk/transportreview The council will be promoting these events and the deadline extension via print and online advertising, local council offices and social media. I would also welcome your support in helping spread the word to residents, so that we can ensure anyone who wants to have their say has the opportunity to do so. No plans will be made until residents have had their say and told us about the services that matter most to them, so we are very grateful for your help in promoting the consultation. If you would like any copies of the printed questionnaire or poster, or have any questions about the local transport review please email or phone 0300 200 1003.
