2020 Community Survey

2020 Community Survey – Reflections

We’re really grateful for everyone who took part in our 2020 Community Survey. The 35 responses included a good mix of ages with over half having lived in the area for more than 10 years.

Everyone seemed very happy living in the Westcliffe and Cold Bath Road area valuing the shops, park and town centre. Traffic and parking were the most frequently mentioned problems although drug misuse and the lack of a post office were also mentioned.

Issues of loneliness and isolation were raised and must have been made much worse over the months since the survey. As Kairos and the wider community we will consider how we might continue to develop Westcliffe Hall as a place to meet, grow friendships and build community. There will be a time for parties and celebration: street parties with the Hall as a hub was an attractive idea.
