Getting to Know You!

Thank you for participating in our Business Support Needs Survey for the Causeway Coast and Glens. 

We want to find out how we can be of practical assistance to the 5000+ businesses in our Borough, particularly over the next three years, as our budgets are prepared and projects are designed. 

By proceeding with this survey, you are agreeing to us gathering your responses for pooling with other responses received. All responses will be kept anonymous. It's the broad picture of needs that we are trying to capture and your participation is appreciated and respected. We will NOT pass these details to anyone else.  No individual business shall be identified in any subsequent reports generated.

IMPORTANT:  Please complete this survey from the viewpoint of a single business. If you wish to do so, please complete a separate survey for any additional businesses, using a separate email address. 

On completion of the survey, you will be invited to enter into our prize draw to win an Apple iPad or similar tablet, for your business, up to the value of £500. No cash alternative will be offered. Only business owners/managers within the Causeway Coast and Glens area are eligible to enter.

For any queries in relation to this survey please email business@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk or phone Joanne McLaughlin 028 7776 0311
