Have you filled in and returned your Retail survey?

Ballina traders have been urged to complete and return the retail surveys that have been distributed to them by the offices of Ballina Chamber of Commerce.

Ballina has been chosen as one of nine towns around Ireland to participate in the Town Centre Health Check pilot programme, and as part of this programme, Retailers have been given the task of filling out a Retail survey.

Developed by the National Heritage Council and RGData, the programme has been created to support socio- economic, cultural and growth in enterprise and development as well as promoting sustainable tourism in Irish towns.

Paul Regan, President of Ballina Chamber of Commerce states ‘Ballina has been very fortunate to be chosen for this pilot programme and it is our best interests to fill in the survey and return to the Tourist/Chamber Offices. I can assure all Ballina retailers, the data which is highly confidential is then submitted to GMIT whereby the information is used  for statistical purposes, as well as reviewing the future planning and flow of the town.’

Collaborative Approach to Planning

This information will enable local authorities, local businesses and local citizens to assess how their town is performing and to form local partnerships to prepare and implement an agreed and shared town centre management strategy.
