Consultations and surveys City centre consultation

At the end of 2016 we did a city centre review to understand the challenges facing us as the city centre grows.

This included asking residents, visitors, workers, and shoppers about their experiences and views of the city centre.

Then in 2017 we started working to improve the things people said needed work.

Now, one year into our three year plan to improve the city centre, we're doing another survey to see how you think we're getting on with these improvements.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Rebecca Edwards (

At the end of the survey, you can give us your contact details to be in with a chance of winning a prize in our draw -  we will contact winners using the details provided.

We've got the following prizes up for grabs:

  • 2 tickets to any of the 2018-2019 concerts from the Halle Orchestra
