City Council wants businesses’ advice about the commercial life of Hull

Following on from the successful Community Strategy survey for local residents, the council has now launched a questionnaire for local businesses to share their views.

This second survey, specifically created for business owners and entrepreneurs, asks what it’s like to run a business in the city, both the positive aspects and barriers, and how the city could better support local ventures.

Business and residents have just two weeks left to take part, before both surveys close on May 22.

Cllr Mike Ross, leader of Hull City Council, said: “We know local people want to be listened to – that’s reflected in the numbers who have already had their say .

“We have been clear since the launch of the Community Strategy questionnaire that a plan for the future of the city must be informed by the people who live and work here. We’ve worked to engage with residents, young people, and now businesses, so that we can be confident the feedback is truly representative.

“I want to thank everyone who has already taken the time to complete the survey, whether online or on paper. There is still time to take part if you haven’t yet. You can pick up a paper survey at libraries, children’s centres, community centres or customer service centres, as well as council buildings and some community events. You have until May 22 to give us your views.

“Don’t forget all completed surveys will be entered into a prize draw to win up to £250 in high street shopping vouchers”.

Ways to participate include:

  • Complete the resident survey online at any time: https://yoursay.hull.gov.uk/community-strategy-plan-2022-2032
  • Visit your local library, customer service centre, children’s centre or community centre to collect a paper copy – postage is free
  • Look out for messages and links on the council’s social media channels
  • Look out for posters and leaflets at locations including council spaces, doctors surgeries, pharmacies and more and scan the QR code to take you directly to the survey.
