An Insightful Online Survey of the Town Planning Profession

The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) recently appointed Enventure Research to conduct a survey of its members, in order to gain useful information about aspects of RTPI membership such as members awareness of and use of services, reasons for membership and participation in RTPI activities.


The survey was designed by the RTPI and Enventure Research and was hosted online for a four-week period in October 2013. This was made available to all RTPI members (approximately 23,000 members) via a variety of methods and an overall response rate of 25% was achieved, with 5,718 members participating in the research an excellent response rate which provided confident statistical analysis.


Enventure Research provided detailed analysis of the survey results, allowing a clear picture of RTPI members to be established. A research report detailed the complete findings and further recommendations.



Successful Resident Engagement in Newry and Mourne, NI


Enventure Research has recently worked with Newry
and Mourne District Council
to assist them in conducting a door-to-door recycling communication campaign.  Newry and Mourne
District Council provides recycling and waste services to approximately 38,000 properties within the District, collecting recycling, residual, food and garden waste.  The Council are committed to improving recycling and composting targets further and therefore wished to promote their services to residents via a door-to-door campaign.
Enventure’s trained recycling promoters visited approximately 7,000 properties within the District and engaged with 4,012 residents over a four-week period during October/November 2013.  A face-to-face questionnaire was administered by recycling promoters in order to collect useful data about residents’ attitudes to and opinions about recycling.

The team promoted the recycling services available to residents and
provided information about which materials can and cannot be recycled in the
different recycling containers.  They were also able to take orders for any replacement recycling containers needed by residents.
Enventure Research provided in-depth analysis of the survey results.  A full research report was delivered which outlined the findings and recommendations. This will be used by the Council to shape future service developments and delivery.
