BUSINESS SURVEY

All businesses in Cheddar are being asked for their views on the village as part of the Neighbourhood Plan which we are preparing.  The brief questionnaire asks businesses how they rate local services and resources including broadband, transport, parking, business premises and staff availability.  It also asks about prospects for expansion to help assess employment opportunities and for views on residential development.

It is an important survey and businesses are urged to complete it online via the link below:

Alternatively you can email: survey@cheddarplan.co.uk for a link directly into the survey.  If you would prefer a paper copy please email: clerk@cheddarparishcouncil.org
