YOUR views on Barnsley's roads and transport services will be compared with others across England thanks to a new survey.

Barnsley Council is one of 78 local authorities to sign up to a standardised survey that will ask members of the public the same questions.

The National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey, which is being run for the seventh year, enables local authorities to compare results, share in best practice and identify opportunities to work together in the future.

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum of 3,300 Barnsley residents this month, followed by a reminder, with local and national results to be published in early October.

Since the survey is based on a sample, residents that receive a copy are being urged to take part.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: "Taking part in this survey is part of the council’s commitment to understanding and responding to the views of the public."
