Greville Road Engagement Survey

Closed 18 Apr 2021

Opened 18 Mar 2021

Feedback updated 16 Dec 2021

We asked

The engagement on Greville Road was open for four weeks from 18 March to 18 April 2021. People were asked about their street environment, what they liked about the street, what they would improve and what would they prioritise. The survey aimed to capture views from residents, businesses and anyone who uses the street to help build a picture of what people would like to see improved and provide feedback on their own experiences.

The survey also asked people to give their views on some proposals to make Greville Road one-way or make it access-only by closing the road at one end or halfway.

Individual responses were received via the online survey and, to ensure the survey reached as wide an audience as possible in a multi-cultural ward, paper copies with a translation offer covering 12 languages were posted along with a free post envelope to 641 local properties. 25 posters were put up in the local area to raise awareness of the survey. Local stakeholders and community groups were also asked to help raise awareness of the survey and it was promoted via social media platforms. As COVID-19 restrictions prevented face to face engagement, the team offered virtual chats and phone appointments to anyone who didn’t want to submit a written response but wanted to ask questions and provide feedback.

You said

From this survey, we received 727 responses, which were made up of 608 online and 119 paper copies. Of the responses received, 97% are residents who live within one mile and more than 93% said they walk to the road.

Around 76% of respondents said they like Greville Road because it is “close to North Street shopping area” and 53% said they like the “personality and character of the street”. The most serious problem identified was “the pavements are too narrow” (34%) followed by “the street is busy with traffic” (33.9%). Over 59% of respondents think “maintaining motorised vehicle access to the street” is an essential priority for Greville Road.

Most respondents either disagreed or strongly disagreed with all four of the different road layout options proposed to restrict access to motorised traffic via either a new one-way system or road closure on Greville Road. 48% of comments were against the proposed changes to road layout, commenting either that they were not needed or highlighting concerns that changes would impact other local roads. Here, 22% of comments in this section called for a neighbourhood-wide approach.

We did

The feedback from this survey along with the engagement with local businesses, community groups and local stakeholders has been reviewed. There were comments for and against the different road layouts proposed throughout the survey, but the responses did not show a consensus among the community. We will therefore not be implementing the suggested changes at this time.

More information about what we engaged on and the results are available in the full report.


We are asking businesses, residents and anyone who enjoys Greville Road to make suggestions on how to make walking and cycling easier and how to improve the general street environment.
