How the survey came about

Our research, together with anecdotal evidence, indicated that there is congestion in Harrogate and Knaresborough. Housing and employment growth is expected to continue, and while local improvements might offset the direct impacts of this growth, they will not help to solve existing congestion.

We asked you whether you thought congestion is a problem, whether it affects you, and what measures you would be prepared to support to help reduce it. We all contribute to congestion, so we all need to be part of improving the situation. Everyone has a stake in making the roads easier to use, safer and healthier for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

We wanted as many people as possible to fill in the survey - we wanted to know what all members of the community saw as the issues.

 

Public exhibitions

We hosted a number of public exhibitions to allow people to view information on the proposals.
