Wokingham Business Survey

Wokingham Borough Council is inviting local businesses to take part in a business survey to help identify their key issues to shape how the council works with them in the future and help them flourish.

New survey is the business

The survey includes questions about their experiences conducting business in the Wokingham Borough, if they are planning to grow, what barriers they face, and also covers apprenticeships.


Businesses can complete it online at www.wokingham.gov.uk/consultation. The closing date is May 20 2016, and the results will be published on the council’s website.

Wokingham Borough is home to leading service sector and hi-tech companies, as well as a strong mix of small to medium enterprises and small businesses.

There are also great opportunities in the borough for small knowledge-based entrepreneurships. During the coming years there will be a significant growth in housing, town centre regeneration and a new science park will be built.

“It’s important we understand more about the needs of our businesses and emerging issues,” said Andrew Nicholls, the council’s economic development officer.

“For the local economy to continue to grow, any barriers to growth and gaps in support need to be understood.”
