Resident survey shows high awareness of eco development

The results of a survey commissioned by A2Dominion at the end of April, shows a high level of local awareness for the NW Bicester eco town development.

In order to ensure community engagement with the scheme, A2Dominion ran the survey to create a benchmark to measure local resident’s knowledge and opinions about NW Bicester. Residents in Bicester Town Centre and Bure Park were asked which elements of the scheme they felt were the most important. 63 percent believed bringing existing and new communities together in Bicester was the most vital element, with 58 percent believing the environmental aspects were important. 

The survey showed that 82 percent of respondents believed that sustainable living is important and that residents wanted to be involved in the project through focus groups and public consultation, as well as by receiving information through the NW Bicester website.
