About the Getting Out and About: Prioritising Highway Repairs Pilot Project
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is trialing a new project in the Clewer and Dedworth East ward to improve older and disabled people’s access to local services and key local places. The aim is to combat loneliness by prioritising highway repairs and related works that may be hindering people getting out into the community or from being active.
We are working with local charities and organisations to consult with older and disabled people living in a single polling district of the Clewer and Dedworth East ward to learn what barriers they face when going out and about in the community, in particular along their main routes to key places and services, such as the shops, post office, library and GP surgeries. The results of the consultation will enable us to identify which routes to prioritise for repairs or works in order to improve access, and to carry out the necessary repairs. We will then consult the same local residents after the works have been completed to measure the impact of the interventions.
How we collect information
We will collect personal information on the Getting Out and About consultation questionnaire. Personal data is provided by the resident either by post, telephone, in person or electronically by email or by completing the consultation questionnaire as an online form on our website.
By providing your information and taking part in our survey, you are providing your consent for us to process your personal data.
What type of information is collected
Name, address, contact details and responses to the Getting Out and About consultation questionnaire. We also collect a limited amount of information relating to your ethnicity and general health as part of the questionnaire.
How we use the information you have provided
The information is collected to enable the project group to:
- Identify which routes to prioritise for repairs or works in order to improve access to services and key places;
- Carry out the necessary repairs;
- Ascertain whether the resident would benefit from being signposted to other services or organisations and to do so with their permission;
- Request clarification of any responses to the questionnaire;
- Send a follow up consultation after the works have been completed to measure the impact of the interventions.
