University student joins up with Vision Group Sidmouth to question community over public access and mobility

A survey, researching Sidmouth’s public access and mobility, has been conducted by an Exeter University student together with the Vision Group Sidmouth.

Matt Porter has devised a range of carefully thought out questions for the community in order to collect and present the results this autumn, writes Naomi Clarke.

The completed questionnaires are to be emailed back to the surveyors by tomorrow (Saturday).

The research particularly focuses on Sidmouth’s busy town centre to get an idea of what changes can be made to improve the access and mobility through the valued opinions of the public.

It also looks at the transport options currently available.

The project will be included as part of a master’s thesis for Matt Porter’s Masters of Science degree (MSc).

The overall findings of the detailed questionnaires will be presented in a statistical format.

There are many parts to the project; anyone over the age of 16 can fill out the questionnaire.

Any participant’s details will be destroyed after the end of the project and the surveyed group will get a chance to see the final analysis and conclusion of the project.
