Getting Around in Headingley

An online survey from Zero Carbon Headingley

Our vision is for arrangements which improve our
environment and prioritise the needs of pedestrians
- particularly those with mobility needs.

To achieve this
we believe that it is necessary to discourage car use
and promote walking, cycling and use of public transport.
But what do you think? 

We have set out some proposals and ask you to use
this questionnaire to let us know what you think of them.

Please rate each proposal out of 5
(1 strongly against, 2 mildly against, 3 neutral, 4 mildly in favour, 5 strongly in favour)

Note also that those items marked with a * are required to be answered and the survey is probably best answered on a big screen rather than a mobile phone.

We would welcome any comments you have - please enter them in box at the end of the survey.

The closing date for all responses is 21st May.
