Created by the Palace Gates Residents' Association, Alexandra Park Neighbours and other local groups, this is the final call to complete the Neighbourhood Street Survey. The deadline has been extended to Friday 20th September, and the more people who take part, the more weight the consultation will have with the authorities. Please share with friends and neighbours - it only takes 5 minutes to complete, with lots of space for comments.
