Community Survey results for Hallett Road

We are writing to thank the many people who completed the recent community street survey for Hallett Road. There was a tremendously high return rate 36 surveys were returned covering at least 56% of all households in your street. So we can feel confident that the views are very representative of many living in the road

Some key results are:-

Getting about most popular means:-57% (20) Walking
-75% (28) Car or van
-65% (23) bus
-22% (8) bike
-3% (1) train

Number of Vehicles in respondent households
(27) cars/vans = 75%
(38) bikes
(1) motorbike

Obstructions on the pavement
70% (25) experienced the pavement as “always” or “often” clear enough whereas
33% (12) found the pavement “never” or “occasionally” clear enough

40% (14 out of 35) have visitors by car or van once or less than once a week

Difficulty parking
9 people said it was always difficult to park, 2 said never.
All times have problems. Weekday mornings are best, week nights are worst.

Controlled parking
25% (9) people are interested in some variation of controlled parking and
65% (23) do not want any kind of controlled parking

Space in Hallett Road and eligible vehicles
23 people who completed the survey have vehicles registered to their address,
0 don’t know and
3 are not (these 3 would not be eligible for a parking permit)

11 wanted more space, 1 less space, 0 wanted no change under controlled parking. It is hard to predict which of these outcomes controlled parking (on one side of the street) would bring for eligible residents

Cost of controlled parking
14% (5) would like controlled parking at cost only (ie not supporting bus passes)
6% (2) at full cost (providing enough income to provide free bus travel for pensioners),
14% (5) on a sliding scale and
53% (19) don’t know

Usage of bike racks if provided
4 people would use bike racks if they were provided and 21 would not use them

What next?
From the sample surveys, it appears that roads south of Islingword Rd and west of Queens park road are interested in looking at forms of controlled parking. Roads north of Elm Grove and east of Queens Park Road want no change. This is based on a small sample and so the HEG LAT are keen to find out more views, especially, in between Islingword Rd and Elm Grove. Once we have more feedback from more surveys about residents wishes, we shall set up a working group to look in detail at a community plan for parking to propose to residents and if residents support it to put to the council.

If you would like to be a street representative for your road or meet with neighbours to discus your street survey result please e-mail David Gibson on davidsg@ntlworld.com or Chris Taylor on greysland@sky.com

Yours faithfully,

David Gibson and Chris Taylor and the HEGLAT team
