Isle of Wight Business Survey

The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is working with planning and economic consultancy Lichfields to undertake a survey to explore the key infrastructure issues affecting businesses operating on the Isle of Wight. The results from the survey will feed into a new Island Infrastructure Investment Plan which will identify the key infrastructure investments needed to support and sustain growth on the Island over the coming years.

For the purposes of the research, ‘infrastructure’ includes: Utilities (including water, waste disposal and flood defence facilities); Energy (including generation and distribution); Transport (including roads, railways, ports and airports and their operators); Telecommunications (including high speed broadband and mobile networks); Human Capital / Skills; and Business Premises.

As a local business, we would welcome your views on the adequacy of existing infrastructure and business premises in the area as well as any barriers that your business currently faces or may face in future if it grows and expands.

We would be grateful if you could take 10 minutes to complete this short survey to provide your feedback and views by Friday 30th June. If you have any queries about this survey, or would like more information, please contact Lucie Bailey at Lichfields on 020 7837 4477 / lucie.bailey@lichfields.uk.

The information you provide will be used by Lichfields to inform the development of a Solent LEP Island Infrastructure Investment Plan. Information and personal details provided in this survey will remain confidential and will not be passed on to any third party without your permission.
