Resident survey aims to keep town centres vibrant

A survey of residents is set to guide the development of town centres across the High Peak. 

The Borough Council has commissioned NEMS Market Research to carry out around 700 telephone surveys to find out more about residents’ shopping and leisure habits and how they want to see places develop and evolve. 

The responses will help shape the Council’s future planning policies and strategies and with forecasting the future retail, leisure, and commercial floor space between now and 2041.   

Council Leader, Councillor Anthony McKeown, said: “This survey will help us further understand the services and amenities our residents want to see in our town centres across the Borough.   

“This information will in turn help shape future planning policies and strategies to help ensure our centres remain vibrant, thriving places to live in, work in and visit.   

“So, if you do get a call from our researchers, we would be grateful if you would help us by responding to the questions. Thanks in advance to everyone who does, your answers will help to shape the future.”   

The survey is underway now and the results are expected by Spring next year when they will be published on the Council’s website.
