The 2009 Vision Plan was produced following a survey conducted in May and June 2008. Individual questionnaires were delivered to all households for every adult and young persons of secondary school age.
Altogether some 2030 adult questionnaires were delivered. Adult responses numbered 1197 with 74 youth forms being returned. The response represented an adult return rate approaching 60% of questionnaires distributed and 60% on a household basis.
The purpose of the survey was to record the views of residents on a range of issues affecting everyday life and their environment, what they value and what might be missing. The issues themselves were identified from resident responses to pre-survey consultation conducted since the commencement of the Vision Plan at the end of 2007
