PEOPLE are being asked to get involved and have a say on what matters to them in Shropshire’s Great Outdoors annual survey..

The Annual Outdoor Recreation User Survey, led by Shropshire Council’s outdoor partnership service, includes questions about the outdoor facilities and activities residents and visitors make use of, how information is obtained, any access barriers people may face, and how satisfied users are with the services provided.

All the information gathered in the survey will be used to support the delivery of Shropshire’s Great Outdoors Strategy 2018-28 which sets out how Shropshire Council and its partners aim to conserve and enhance the natural environment, improve people’s health and wellbeing and support the local tourism economy.

“Residents and visitors alike enjoy the vast range of activities on offer and the natural beauty of our county which is also steeped in history and culture,” said Cecilia Motley, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for communities, culture, leisure and tourism, and transport.

“Undertaking the survey each year allows Shropshire Council to understand how things are changing and where future actions should be prioritised.”
