The Phase II survey will run for an eight week period starting at the end of November 2012 and running until January 18th, 2013. The primary focus of this will be to follow up on last year’s Phase I initiative and to solicit comments and ideas from the general public.
The survey will be conducted in a number of ways and the following three elements will be included:
•On-line: People can go into the website and input their comments directly on a blog or complete an on-line Questionnaire.
•Direct surveys of the general public: Street surveys will be conducted at a number of prominent public places (such as shopping areas) over the December-January period.
•Specific surveys of key transport related users will also be conducted.
The group will also be willing to engage directly with all relevant stakeholders in developing its ideas and it will welcome the opportunity to meet with any relevant groups – public or private.
The website will be a critical part of the engagement and best practice in relation to e-participation will be used. The format and make-up of the website will incorporate best practice from some of the most liveable cities in the world where public e-participation has had a very beneficial effect.
