Alston, Appleby, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith Surveys
To complete the short survey, please click on the link below for each Town.
We are currently working alongside Action for Market Towns (AMT) on a Benchmarking Project. Benchmarking has been conducted by AMT in over 120 towns and involves capturing data on 12 Key Performance Indicators within town centres such as retail offering, footfall, car parking, business confidence, shopper origin and town centre user views.
Once each town centre has been reviewed, AMT will provide us with a comprehensive report highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the individual towns, how each of the town centres could be improved, examples of good practice and how the towns fare against other towns from across England and Wales and towns of a similar type.
In the past, Benchmarking has been used to understand how town centres operate, plan and develop regeneration initiatives, measure the impact of developments and as an evidence base to attract funding. Thank you.
