Local Business Survey

Every quarter, Business West invites Chamber of Commerce members and selected local businesses to complete a survey, which provides a snapshot of business confidence and trading conditions during the past three months.

Findings from the Survey are regularly reported in the media and respondents have gained local and national press coverage off the back of participating.

On a national level, results from the survey feed into the British Chambers quarterly economic survey, recognised as the largest and most representative independent business survey.

The survey is published in advance of official figures and other private surveys and is one of three surveys regularly reviewed by the Bank of England when setting monetary policy.
