Survey for business on the challenges of COVID-19

We would like to talk to local business owners to help you complete a new survey for 2021 on the challenges of COVID-19 and how you've responded. 

The survey, which will be carried out by phone will be looking for your ideas and feedback to discover areas where support is most needed. If you have a great idea that you think could help forge the way forward, or a show-stopping event that would bring a welcome boost to businesses, then we would like you to share it with us.

Bring us your 'Blue-Sky' thinking - whether your ideas are small or broad-brush, big, bold, colourful, daring, playful, straight-forward, or revolutionary. All ideas are welcome.

It will also be a chance to let us know your experiences and views on what has worked well, or not so well, over the last 12 months. This is an opportunity for the business community to share their experiences and ideas to help pave the way forward and make a real impact on the recovery. We will initially be contacting businesses from retail, hospitality, and leisure sectors. 

If you would like to take part in this survey and play a part in shaping the recovery, please email us at and we will be in touch.
