Welcome to the Penrose Trails Business Survey

The National Trust and URS, on behalf of Defra, are undertaking an assessment of the social and economic benefits that can be derived through local investment in recreational trails.

The aim of this research is to help inform Defra and other stakeholders understand the different benefits that can be derived from recreation trails. It will also allow for more effective decision-making, policy formulation, and intervention programmes to aid the continued development and management of recreational trails.

As a local business and a key stakeholder within the local economy, we invite you to participate in the following survey that requests your views as to the benefits (or otherwise) that your business is gaining from recent changes to trails in Penrose. The survey has been designed with a mixture of both closed and open questions, and should take around 10 minutes to complete.

Please be assured that none of your responses will be attributed back to you personally or your business.

If you have any problems completing this survey please contact Barry Woodfin (01256 315105) or Kevin Duxbury (0161 237 6036) for further information.
