As part of a research collaboration between Plymouth City Council and Plymouth Marjon University, this questionnaire explores a number of areas relating to the Spend4Plymouth initiative.  The overall aim of the project is to support the ongoing delivery of the Spend4Plymouth initiative identifying key drivers and barriers to success.

Spend4Plymouth was established as part of the City’s broader COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan but has been recognized as an initiative that still is, and will remain a key driver in ensuring Plymouth is a resilient, growing and sustainable city. 

The research will involve an initial questionnaire open to all organisations and business in the PL postcode, followed by participant selected interviews. You do not need to participate in the interviews to complete this survey.  Survey and interview  data will be retained until the analysis of the interview transcripts has been completed.  This is estimated to be the 15th December

The research is anonymous as no details of a personal nature are required nor are your contact details needed.  However, there is an option to add your name and contact details at the end of the questionnaire if you are interested in participating in further research (interviews).  The details provided will not be linked to the information given in the questionnaire.  By starting the questionnaire you are providing consent to take part. If you wish to withdraw from the study you can do so at any time
