The Southside Place Standard (online survey)

Closed 31 Dec 2016

Opened 30 Nov 2016


How good is the Southside as a place to live? With the help of various Southside organisations, we ran a couple of Place Standard events on 22/11/16 and 26/11/16.

We used the Place Standard tool to enable groups of participants to discuss what’s good about the Southside and what could be improved.

(NB these are not the results from the Southside Place Standard events)

Now that these events have taken place, we are running an online survey using the same questions from the Place Standard tool which was used at the events to get your individual views on how well the Southside works as a place to live. 

Why your views matter

Being able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the Southside as a place to live, work and visit is important in shaping our future policies for the area. The idea of running this online survey is to listen to what the people of the Southside have to say about their area and address their concerns by taking action.

This is not just another consultation; it is an opportunity to make a difference to the area in which you live.
