Overview

The purpose of this survey is to help develop a better understanding of the current climate in which the borough’s businesses are operating, their confidence, investment experiences and intentions.

Please note: This survey's closing date has been extended to 16 January 2022.

This year, we are focusing on understanding the impact of COVID-19 and Brexit on businesses, both over the last year and looking ahead.

All completed surveys received will be entered into our FREE Prize Draw to WIN a £100 Gift Card.

The Economic Recovery and Regeneration team provides training, support and information to businesses, and the results of the survey will inform our response to business support both in the immediate and longer term, ensuring we focus resources on issues and opportunities of most interest and benefit to you.

We will share information gathered with other LBH services, to develop a holistic view and to gain a better understanding of the support needed for businesses. 

Many of you took part in our "Business Impact Survey - Coronavirus" which concluded in June 2020. The results have provided us with valuable data, helping develop the One Hounslow Forward Together Borough Recovery Plan.

Through this we have been:

  • Lobbying national Government on behalf of businesses who did not sufficiently benefit from existing Government measures.
  • Delivering our High Streets Recovery Action Plan, including ShopSafeShopLocal and Reopening Safely campaigns.
  • Providing support and guidance to businesses via a dedicated team, e-bulletins and webpages, and working closely with our networks and partners.
  • Delivering Innovate & Grow, a wide ranging business support programme providing start up and micro business support as well as tools and techniques to adapt and grow your business.
  • Distributing £80m in grants and nearly another £80m in Rates relief to support businesses.

What happens next

Thank you for your interest, this survey is now closed.
