3. How we did our consultation
The questionnaire was available online and on paper. It was publicised in a wide variety of ways including sending it directly to over 4,000 people with car park permits that we had current email addresses for. It was also publicised in a press release sent out to the local media and on our social media accounts. It was also sent to town and parish councils, chambers of commerce and East Devon District Councillors who were all asked to fill it in and pass the opportunity onto their residents and clients.
869 respondents sent us a completed questionnaire.
When looking at the general results it is worth bearing in mind that 64% of respondents already have car park permits. The results of the statistical questions on car park permits have been broken down by those with and those without permits.
