Residents and businesses are each being asked to take part in a short questionnaire regarding the future growth of Bicester to help identify what is important to locals.
Cherwell District Council has composed two similar questionnaires to consider what issues residents and businesses consider important to Bicester and how they currently receive updates about the town.
The survey – which consists of less than ten questions – also gives participants the opportunity to sign up for regular updates on key projects within the town.
Cllr Barry Wood, leader of Cherwell District Council, said: “These two surveys effectively contain the same questions except one has been tailored to residents and the other toward businesses. Over the next 15 years Bicester is set to undergo some major changes and this questionnaire will help us to consider what is important to residents.
“This survey will help us to get a better understanding of what changes people might like to see and which channels of communication are the most effective so we can ensure they are properly utilised. It will also give people the chance to subscribe to updates so any information will be sent directly to their email inbox.”
Each of the surveys contains multiple choice questions with an opportunity for participants to expand on any of the key issues.
Both surveys are running simultaneously the results will then be used by members of Cherwell’s Bicester team to communicate future project updates.
