Further to the announcement by the Prime Minister of a national roadmap to recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic, Groundwork have been engaged by Burnley Borough Council to work in partnership to develop an action plan to guide the safe and phased reopening of the high street and neighbourhood centres over the next few months.

To ensure the action plan is based on current business challenges and needs, please could you take five minutes to complete this short online survey below.

The survey focusses on three key areas to help Burnley Borough Council identify opportunities to support you as we move through the phased reopening to June:

  1. Improving customer safety messaging
  2. Providing you with business support
  3. Identifying enhancements/changes to the pedestrian areas and highways to support social distancing

I would stress that all the responses will be confidential – none of the individual answers will be linked back to specific businesses from any of the findings from this survey, so please answer the questions honestly and confidently.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support to re-open our high streets and neighbourhood centres safely.  Should you require any specific advice or support during this period, please email burnleybid@groundwork.org.uk and we will either answer your queries directly or signpost you to the appropriate bodies.

If you have any queries specifically regarding this consultation, please contact me, Gary Chester, directly at gary.chester@groundwork.org.uk .
