What’s it like to live in a new community?

Survey V2 - A4 without bleed

We are asking residents of Broughton Gate and Brooklands to answer a few short questions about what it’s like to live in a new community, and what you would like to see as the area develops.

We will use the information (anonymised of course!) to get a sense of how the community is developing, and share your views with decision makers who are involved in creating new communities to see what lessons can be learned.

As a ‘thank you’ for your time we will enter you into a prize draw to win a £50 voucher.
