Visitors to Connaught Gardens and Manor Gardens are being asked to complete surveys to help East Devon District Council plan improvements to the green spaces it manages.

Both surveys are available on the district council's website.

In both cases visitors are asked their reasons for visiting the gardens, how they got there and how long they spent there.

They are asked about their favourite parts of the gardens, and whether they've attended any special events there such as concerts, weddings (at Connaught) or Manorfest (at Manor Gardens).

The survey also asks whether visitors have seen or experienced any anti-social behaviour in the parks. This could be vandalism, noise, abusive or intimidating behaviour, or dogs out of control.

As part of the consultation, people are also asked their views about other green spaces they visit in East Devon, and invited to give suggestions on how they could be improved.
