300 fill in transport survey

ABOUT 300 people have completed a survey about transport in Henley.

ABOUT 300 people have completed a survey about transport in Henley.

The questionnaire was devised by the Henley in Transition group to help form a blueprint for combating traffic congestion and reducing emissions.

The group hopes that 200 more surveys will be completed before the deadline at the end of Sunday.

Laila Meachin, who chairs Henley Town Council’s traffic advisory committee, said: “Thanks very much to all the residents, organisations and businesses who have supported us so far.

“We need as many responses as possible in order to get the best picture of transport use in Henley. We can then begin to work on transport projects that will benefit the town, residents, visitors, businesses and the environment.”

Meanwhile, economics students from The Henley College have begun contacting businesses and organisations to discuss transport use as part of the project.

The students are researching ideas such as pedestrianisation, car clubs and increasing cycle use and will give presentations about their findings in the town hall on July 9 and 10.

The survey is available at www.henley-in-transition.org.uk

Hard copies are available at the Henley Standard’s office, the town hall and the library.
