Introduction

What is this survey about?
S3 Solutions have been commissioned to deliver an extensive consultation process to inform the development of the Sperrin Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Management Plan. The Sperrins Partnership has been established as a cross-council led project which aims to preserve and enhance the natural, built and cultural heritage of the Sperrin region. Members include representatives from Causeway, Coast and Glens Borough Council, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, and Mid Ulster Council. The Sperrin AONB Management Plan will set out the vision, aims and objectives for Sperrin AONB and the priorities for its management over the next 5-10 years. This survey will help to inform the Management Plan.

Who is this survey for?
An important part of this consultation process involves gathering views, insights and feedback from the communities which surround the Sperrin Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you own a business or represent a business in one of these communities, we want to hear from you! Your contribution is important to us and we would appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey.

What do we ask?
The survey asks you to state which organisation you are responding on behalf of and contribution from your organisation will be noted in the report produced following the consultation process. Whilst the report will provide a summary of the findings gathered from all stakeholders through this consultation process, findings from your organisation may be highlighted if they bear specific alignment to central areas for consideration in the development of the Management Plan.

Participating in this survey
You are being asked to participate in this survey as a representative of the views of your organisation. Please bear this in mind when completing the survey. The views expressed through your answers should reflect the goals, priorities and objectives of your organisation.

What we do with the information you provide
Information is gathered via this survey for the purposes of informing the development of the Sperrin AONB Management Plan only. The information you provide will not be used in conjunction with any other purpose.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete, but it's okay if it takes longer.
