The annual General Public Survey from Preston’s Business Improvement District (BID) is aiming to capture the thoughts and opinions of thousands of people visiting the city centre.

Visitors are being asked to spare a couple of minutes of their time to share their thoughts on a multitude of topics including shopping, leisure, travel, vibrancy and safety.

And the survey’s original deadline of June has now been extended.

Preston City Centre BID Manager, Mark Whittle, inset, said: “It’s open ended for now, so we’ll keep it running for a good few weeks at least.”

He added: “The BID’s groups, Preston At Night, Business Crime Reduction Partnership and the Retail Forum use the results to direct and influence our plans.

“We’re always taking a sound check from our visitors, it’s their support we rely to make Preston a great place.”

The survey has been going since 2010 and assists BID in its annual activity plan.

Last year’s survey showed an unprecedented number of people from outside of Preston chose to visit to enjoy the city’s leisure and retail offer.

More than 80 per cent of those who completed the 2017 survey stated that BID’s campaigns and events were of significant value to the city centre.
