Local Business Survey

Every quarter, Business West invites Initiative members and selected local businesses to complete a survey that provides a snapshot of business confidence and local trading conditions over the preceding quarter.

Results from the Survey are communicated to local and national decision makers, as we push for practical and workable change, and are regularly reported in local and national media outlets.

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 in the UK, it is regularly reviewed by the Bank of England when setting monetary policy.
