Questionnaire Results

Summary of Questionnaire Results

Basic Facts

  • The questionnaire was hand delivered to every dwelling in Byfleet and was also available online from the Byfleet Forum website.
  • We had replies from 1,598 residents (NB over 18), 521 online and 1,077 from the paper version, which is approximately 27% of the adult population.
  • The replies were very evenly distributed by sex (52% female) and reasonably evenly by area and age, though there were slightly fewer replies from the 18-40 age group (ie 24% rather than 33%) and north of the village (25% rather than 33%).
  • The main results were very clear and reflected earlier responses from residents during the drop-ins this spring and other similar community meetings last year.
