Survey of Residents and Businesses

The Coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on the lives and health of many people in Wales and across the UK. We have been relatively lucky in Powys and Hay that the number of cases has been lower than much of the UK. However, the coronavirus has had a severe economic impact with businesses being affected financially and residents being furloughed or made redundant.
 
We have been fortunate to have a good support network in Hay with both residents and businesses stepping up to support those who have needed it.
 
This crisis is still with us and unlikely to disappear any time soon, so we have to find new ways of living and working that keep residents safe but also support the reopening of our town’s businesses. Many of these businesses have worked hard to keep their services operating during the crisis in order to meet customer need and we should support them by continuing to shop locally where we can.
 
Temporary measures to aid social distancing (mainly pedestrianisation of certain roads) have been introduced in the town centre with mixed results. We (Hay Town Council) are trying to work with Powys County Council and the Chamber of Commerce to reduce the negative impact of the road closures as far as possible. However, we need to know what you the residents and businesses of the town think.
 
We have an opportunity with this crisis, and the aid of grant funding from Welsh Government, to think about our town centre in a different way and ensure that it not only becomes a safe space for residents and visitors, but also helps businesses to keep trading and return to economic security.
 
There are just a few questions on this form, and we would appreciate your input.
