Ru­ral jobs sur­vey

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Hobson's Choice -

BUSI­NESSES are be­ing urged to help give the area’s ru­ral econ­omy a boost.

Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil has teamed up with the Greater Peter­bor­ough Part­ner­ship to ask res­i­dents and busi­ness own­ers, lo­cated in vil­lages around the city, to take part in a sur­vey de­signed to sup­port ef­forts to stim­u­late ru­ral economies.

The sur­vey, which con­sists of two parts, first asks for res­i­dents’ opin­ions and thoughts on the make-up of lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties. In ad­di­tion, the sur­vey is seek­ing in­for­ma­tion on peo­ple’s em­ploy­ment habits, var­i­ous job op­por­tu­ni­ties and de­tails on es­sen­tial in- fras­truc­ture to help gen­er­ate eco­nomic growth.

The sec­ond part of the ex­ten­sive sur­vey wants to find out from the own­ers or man­agers of busi­nesses, which are lo­cated in ru­ral ar­eas, what the ob­sta­cles and is­sues are that they be­lieve pre­vent the devel­op­ment of ru­ral economies. A spokesman for the coun­cil added: “Once the re­sults of the sur­vey have been col­lated and an­a­lysed, the views of the res­i­dents will be used to de­velop a new strat­egy for ru­ral economies.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Michael Kelly at Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil on 01733 864307.
