No, you should not be prompted to register or anything like that. 
Why? Did you get such a prompt?  I've just tested in a couple 
browsers and not got a problem. You just follow the link, click 
'Next' to go to the next page to fill in the survey, click 'Done' 
at the end. Registration at SurveyMonkey should not be required 
to fill in the survey. It does require javascript though, apologies.

OUCS has an 'unlimited' (but not 'professional') account at 
surveymonkey and it is this which I'm (ab)using to make the 
survey. I will make all the data available back to Council of course.
