Carnoustie survey results soon

A SURVEY of Carnoustie consumers by business leaders has recently been completed and the results will be available soon.

The Carnoustie Shopping survey created by the Business Association in conjunction with Angus Council, the Carnoustie Development Group, and the Community Council, is now complete. Some 5,250 surveys were delivered to Carnoustie homes, while shoppers could also collect them from local shops, or record their feelings on-line.

Townspeople showed their passion about the future of Carnoustie by returning a staggering 1,525 surveys, completed.

A return of around 30 per cent is considered good, with the usual response being around the 15 to 20 per cent mark for a survey of this kind. Very shortly the winner of the Granary hamper will be announced after having been picked at random from the 870 people who entered the prize draw. With over 1,500 responses to analyse, and more than 850 comments to digest, classify, and respond to, the Carnoustie Business Association committee will be working throughout August and early September.

The committee aim to prepare a presentation for a public meeting scheduled for the evening of September 21 at the Royal British Legion (Scotland) in Dundee Street.

Peter Burke, one of the committee members said: “If you’re a current shopkeeper, or a potential shopkeeper considering opening a shop, mark this date in your diary to come along and hear what the people of Carnoustie think your opportunities are.”
