Have Your Say on the economic vitality of Eden town centres

Eden District Council is undertaking benchmarking reviews of the four town centres in Eden District to measure the economic vitality of Appleby, Alston Moor, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith against key indicators such as retail offer, footfall, a shopper's origin, business performance and car parking.

The results of benchmarking reviews are used by councils in a variety of methods including; developing regeneration projects, attracting funding, measuring the impact of events and festivals, creating town centre partnerships, planning projects and inward investment.

As part of the benchmarking review process, some short online surveys are available for the public to complete for each town, whereby people can give their ratings and views on various aspects of the town centre. The surveys take about two minutes to complete and are available via the links below:
Alston Moor
• Appleby
• Kirkby Stephen
