NHT Business Users Satisfaction Survey

The National Highways & Transportation (NHT) Businesses Survey, carried out in conjunction with industry experts Ipsos MORI, is being used to gather feedback from businesses regarding their views on highways services. The survey replicates a similar residents survey and asks for satisfaction levels in relation to various aspects of the service delivered by Dorset Highways (Dorset County Council).

Your feedback is vital as it’s your chance to provide us with direct feedback on highway matters that impact on your business. It will help us look at priorities for the coming years and how customer perception has changed over time. Feedback will also be built into our business planning processes, allowing us to act on the information and look to improve the service provided where possible.

Please note: as this survey is being conducted by Dorset Highways (Dorset County Council) we would ask that only those businesses within the Dorset County Council boundary complete the survey.
