For the second year in a row the public’s views on Aberdeenshire Council’s roads and transportation services will be compared to others across the country.

The local authority joins 77 others in signing up for the National Highways and Transport Public Satisfaction survey which will ask residents across the country questions.

The questionnaire will be sent to a minimum random sample of 3,300 Aberdeenshrie residents during July, followed by a reminder, and national results will be published in early October.

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

The survey can be completed online through a short URL link printed on the document.

The council’s infrastructure boss Peter Argyle said: “There are clear benefits to conducting a public survey in this way.

“As well as providing excellent value for money, it also enables everyone involved to identify areas of best practice and highlight trends.”
