Poll result – Would you set up a business in Knaphill High Street?
A good response rate for the [now closed] poll led to 42% of you saying YES, you would set up a business in Knaphill High Street! This is great. Where are you?! I didn’t get any reasons through to share unfortunately but I would genuinely be interested in your thoughts – firstname.lastname@example.org
We ran a survey from July-August 2012 to try and gain an insight as to your view of the Knaphill Residents’ Association. The results have been presented to the committee and are here with comments for your information.

If you have a poll you would like to see then let me know.
Some past poll results -
Is speeding in Knaphill a problem?
- I notice it frequently (55%, 36 Votes)
- I notice it occasionally (25%, 16 Votes)
- No (20%, 13 Votes)
Total Voters: 65
The illegal signage on traffic lights poll stirred 52 respondents and 91% wanted them removed! Whereas everyone does have the right to make a living, it is clearly preferred that people advertise in line with normal rules. Following advice from Surrey Highways, they state it is their responsibility to remove the flyers and you can report them via the SCC website here and selecting ”Advertising – over crowded’.
eNews & Bulletin
We have an eNewsletter to better help us stay in touch with Members. It is designed, in part, to address one of our shortcomings in communication with Members who have rightly felt in the past that we haven’t been as chatty as we could have been. While being created specifically for Members of the KRA, it is currently open to all and we would appreciate any feedback you can give.
It will deliver information about the village in a timely manner direct to your inbox so if you’d like to receive this service, please sign up!
