This is a visitors survey.
The Shropshire Outdoor Partnerships Service is the part of Shropshire Council that maintains and develops recreational access, conserves and enhances the natural environment and encourages people to improve their well-being by being active outdoors.
The service maintains and protects public rights of way, country parks, countryside and heritage sites, greenspaces and play areas, and supports the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership.
Working with local communities across Shropshire, our priorities are to conserve and enhance the natural environment, improve people’s health and wellbeing and support the local tourism economy.
About this survey:
Shropshire’s Great Outdoors Strategy 2018-28 sets out the strategic direction for the management and development of publicly accessible green space, rights of way and other access in the unitary authority area of Shropshire, aiming to inspire action to improve health, prosperity and happiness by cherishing Shropshire’s great outdoors. The strategy fulfills the statutory requirement of a rights of way improvement plan, but broadens the remit to deliver across multiple policy areas and to integrate activity across local authority services and partner organisations.
This strategy has been developed in partnership with a range of key organisations and users and informed by data analysis and research. To help define our services we undertake an annual user satisfaction survey.
Shropshire Great Outdoors would like to hear from you, even if you don’t use rights of way, parks, play areas or countryside sites, so we can understand what the barriers to participation are.Please take the time to complete our short questionnaire which you can access by clicking on the “How to get involved tab” at the top of the page, and help us to develop and improve the service. If you take part in a number of activities that make use of facilities in different ways and for which you would give different responses, eg for walking with friends and riding, you can fill in this survey for each activity.
Resources to deliver the strategy are under increasing pressure and your responses will help us to identify key areas for priority in the future. The results will also help us to identify those less valued areas of the service which we could give a lower priority.
The survey should only take about ten minutes of your time, depending on how much detail you give when answering the questions.
