Ilminster Business Survey

The Ilminster Forum is working with South Somerset District Council to determine what can be done to help improve the viability of businesses in and around Ilminster. This survey, we hope, will identify what might be lacking and where assistance might be required. The Ilminster Forum and the businesses themselves will be able to use the data generated by the survey to apply for grant funding for projects that may have been highlighted in the survey. The only time we ask for personal information is in Questions 29 and 40, such personal information will not appear in any of our reports - ensuring data will be anonymous. This survey is aimed at all types of business and therefore some of the questions may not be relevant to your business. However, the more complete the forms are when they are returned to us, the easier it will be to persuade funders and other relevant organisations to support the actions needed to benefit Ilminster. We have tried to ensure that every business in Ilminster is aware of this survey, however if you know of a business that has not received this information please let us know. This survey is on Smart Survey and can be accessed using the following link:
