A survey on Preston city centre is asking Prestonians how they feel about the new look Fishergate – and its traffic system.


Preston Business Improvement District has launched its annual survey about the city centre.

Last year more than 1,000 people filled in the survey but this year it is set for a big response as it asks about Fishergate.

Questions include whether the Fishergate measures should be scrapped, whether traffic has been improved or worsened and how people feel about how Fishergate now looks.

Mark Whittle from Preston BID told Business Lancashire: “The BID has daily dialogue with businesses to shape the work we do on their behalf. In order for the city centre to continue to grow and improve, it’s vital that we take a sounding from our visitors too.

“The feedback gathered from the 2017 survey will assist us, and other city centre stakeholders, in ensuring Preston remains an attractive place to visit, work and invest’.”

Preston BID was re-elected last year for a five year term representing city centre businesses.

The survey runs until 31 March 2017 and anyone entering can enter into a draw to win £100 to spend in the city centre.

You can enter the survey online.
