Hemsby Residents and Business Survey - Your Village Your Say


1. About this survey

Welcome to this survey. If you live in, are employed in, or own a business in Hemsby, we would really like to hear from you. The survey includes questions about living or working in Hemsby; what issues are important to you; and what you know and think about how climate change might affect Hemsby, particularly in relation to coastal erosion and flooding. This is a joint survey between Coastal Partnership East and Hemsby Neighbourhood Planning Group, on behalf of Hemsby Parish Council, and the information you give us will help with two projects:
  • The Coastal Erosion and Climate Change Project is looking at how to involve communities in planning for the future impacts of coastal erosion and / or increased flooding as a result of a changing climate on the place where they live or work.  
  • The Hemsby Neighbourhood Planning Project will use some of the responses to this survey to help develop Hemsby’s Neighbourhood Plan. This is a key planning document produced by residents to influence the future type and location of growth in Hemsby. The Neighbourhood Plan will ultimately sit alongside Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s adopted Local Plan, so its policies will be used, amongst others, to determine planning applications.

The survey should take you 15-20 minutes to complete. We understand that, due to the impact of Covid-19, this period may be difficult for you and your family. Participation in the survey is totally voluntary but, if you decide to take part, your time is very much appreciated. All participants who complete the survey, in full, can opt into a prize draw to win a £50 One4all Gift Card, ready to spend with 1000s of different shops. Full terms and conditions are outlined below.  All responses will be treated as anonymous and you are not required to provide your name or contact details, except where you choose to enter into the prize draw. By completing the survey, you consent to allowing your responses to be used by the climate change project and Neighbourhood Planning project. All information will be stored securely on UK-based servers, compliant with GDPR rules. For further information, please see our Privacy Policy.
