Work starts on busi­ness sur­vey

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Television -

An an­nual sur­vey has just been launched to mea­sure eco­nomic progress in Peter­bor­ough over the last 12 months and look ahead to the prospects for the fu­ture. It is hoped that hun­dreds of busi­nesses will take part in the 2017 Greater Peter­bor­ough Busi­ness Sur­vey. It is be­ing con­ducted by city ac­coun­tancy firm Rawl­in­sons and sup­ported by eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment com­pany Op­por­tu­nity Peter­bor­ough. It is aimed at busi­nesses op­er­at­ing in the Greater Peter­bor­ough area rather than Cam­bridgeshire as a whole. Last year about 200 com­pa­nies took part rang­ing from start-ups and mi­cro busi­nesses through to multi mil­lion pound or­gan­i­sa­tions with hun­dreds of staff. Chief ex­ec­u­tive of Op­por­tu­nity Peter­bor­ough Steve Bowyer said: “This will be our fourth Greater Peter­bor­ough Busi­ness Sur­vey so we’re start­ing to build an in­ter­est­ing pic­ture of how our econ­omy is per­form­ing over time – taken from the view­point of busi­nesses across the area which is re­ally im­por­tant. “This sur­vey gives a flavour of how things panned out for Peter­bor­ough busi­nesses in 2016 and, per­haps more im­por­tantly, how things look go­ing for­ward.” The sur­vey will be dis­trib­uted in the Greater Peter­bor­ough busi­ness com­mu­nity and is avail­able to com­plete on­line: www.sur­vey­mon­key. co.uk/r/pe­ter­bor­ough­busi­ness-sur­vey
