Bath & North East Somerset Council is gathering evidence to support the preparation of its Local Plan, and city retailers are being asked for their input.
Local Plans are the key documents through which local planning authorities can set out a vision and framework for the future development of the area. With a forthcoming Local Plan consultation period set for summer 2018, work is underway to understand retail supply and demand in Bath & North East Somerset both now and for the future.
One area of interest is the need to understand the city’s independent traders and their customers, as well as the associated economic impacts on Bath. A short survey has been prepared to help inform the research and policy development process and the Council is keen for city-based independent retailers to respond.
Please see link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ZHNR7MZ
The deadline for responding to the survey is noon Thursday 31 May 2018.
