12 © Boardworks Ltd of 27 The council’s survey has revealed the extent of the traffic problems. So what do the people who use Corporation Street think should be done? A questionnaire needs to be sent out out. But how will we design it? The questionnaire needs to gather the responses of a range of people – young, old, drivers and non-drivers. This way the results will give a fair range of views about what should be done about the traffic problem. A traffic-free street? We need to think about: what questions to ask. the best way to record the answers. what type of people to ask.

13 © Boardworks Ltd of 27 Here is the traffic questionnaire ready to be handed out to people on Corporation Street. A traffic-free street? Do you think this is a good design? How might you change it for your high street? Do you need to give people any more information?
