Lyde Green Covid-19 Travel Survey
We are currently inviting Lyde Green residents to participate in a short travel survey to find out more about how Covid-19 is impacting travel in new residential areas in South Gloucestershire. The survey asks residents how they are intending to travel in the future when social-distancing restrictions begin to ease. It is also an opportunity to request our free travel offers.
During December 2020 and January 2021 we will be inviting a selection of residents by letter to complete the survey online. You can also contact us to request a paper copy.
We will publish headline results here in mid-January 2021. There is also a prize draw for 3 x £25 shopping vouchers (your choice of Amazon, Sainsbury’s or John Lewis) to thank all participating residents for their time to complete the survey.
