Settle Survey


2nd April 2012 – 22nd April 2012

We would really welcome your views on Settle Town Centre.

Whether you are a frequent user or someone who rarely visits Settle, we would like to know your views – both positive and negative!

To complete the short survey, please click on the link below.



Settle Area Regeneration Team (StART) are currently working alongside Action for Market Towns (AMT) on a Benchmarking Project. Benchmarking has been conducted by AMT in over 120 towns and involves capturing data on 12 Key Performance Indicators within the town centre such as retail offering, footfall, car parking, business confidence, shopper origin and town centre user views. Once the town centre has been reviewed, AMT will provide StART with a comprehensive report highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of Settle, how the town centre could be improved, examples of good practice and how the town fares against other towns from across England and Wales and towns of a similar type.

In the past, Benchmarking has been used to understand how town centres operate, plan and develop regeneration initiatives, measure the impact of developments and as an evidence base to attract funding.

If anyone would prefer to complete a paper-based survey, then these will be available from Settle TIC and a number of shops in Settle for the duration of the study.



If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Mike King, Action for Market Towns, 07818 068982,
