Newry, Mourne and Down District Council commission work on a Retail and Commercial Leisure Needs and Capacity Study
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council has commissioned work on a Retail and Commercial Leisure Needs and Capacity Study by specialist consultants Nexus Planning to feed into the Local Development Plan.
Part of the information gathering will involve asking residents about their shopping and leisure preferences. A telephone and door-to-door survey, involving around 900 residents in and around the Newry, Mourne and Down area, will be conducted by NEMS Market Research. The information provided will help give the Council a better understanding of how and where people like to shop, spend their leisure time and use their town centres.
The survey should take approximately six or seven minutes to complete. Most approaches will be made outside normal working hours in order to make sure working households can take part.
No personal information will be collected other than age and gender. Any information you provide will be used in statistical form only, so that it will not be possible for you to be identified from your answers.
We would welcome people taking part in the survey and greatly appreciate all responses, but anyone contacted is under no obligation to take part.
If you would like to know more about the Study, please contact Michael McQuiston in the Planning team on 0300 200 7830.
