Business Survey

​An important survey about the needs of local businesses is being undertaken across Cheshire in January and February 2017.

Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), Cheshire East Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council have teamed-up to commission BMG Research to undertake a telephone survey with 1,500 randomly selected businesses across the sub-region.  You may be contacted to provide your views.   It has been designed so that businesses of all sizes across the spectrum of industries will have an opportunity to present their views and have their voice heard.   The aim of the research is to help assess business health, identify opportunities for growth and investment and to understand any barriers local companies might be facing. It looks at key business elements like workforce and training issues; customers and suppliers, business planning, IT infrastructure, support and regulatory services, environment, and issues specific to the local area.   The results will help the LEP and local Councils in targeting services and public sector investment effectively, help them to attract private sector investment and help local businesses to grow and prosper.     The current research will build on a similar survey run in 2011 across the region and will help show how businesses have grown and adapted to changes. It will help us build on the strengths of local business to help Cheshire businesses thrive into the future.   BMG will be calling a random selection of local businesses in January, February and March. If you are contacted, please take the time to give your views, we value your insights.   If you have any questions about the survey or would like further information please contact Nick Billington:
