The Engagement Champions project is working in partnership with Calderdale Council to undertake a survey with local residents to determine their experiences and opinions of travel in the local area.

The method of engagement will be a series of door to door interviews to be conducted following the introduction of the new 20mph speed limit to determine resident’s views since its implementation.

This work will be paid at a rate of £7.50 for each completed survey.  Payment is made to your chosen local community organisation or charity.
