Cottenham Parish Council Neighbourhood Development Plan Survey

Enventure Research has recently been commissioned to deliver research on behalf of Cottenham Parish Council.


There are approximately 6,400 residents residing in 2,700 properties across the Cambridgeshire village of Cottenham. Enventure Research will design the self-completion questionnaire in partnership with Cottenham Parish Council, which will be available in both paper and online format to ensure every household has the opportunity to take part. This questionnaire will seek to consult residents about issues, priorities and ideas, as well as evaluate likes and dislikes and satisfaction with living in the village.


Responses from the completed surveys will contribute towards the initial draft of the Neighbourhood Development Plan, which sets out the community’s vision over the next 15 years.

Exploring the views of students for the Royal Institute of Town Planning

The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has recently commissioned Enventure Research again to conduct an online questionnaire for students studying courses related to town planning.


This survey aims to find out about students’ views on career and course choices and how students feel about the planning profession, as well as views on membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute and how becoming a member could help them now and in the future.


Feedback from the questionnaire responses will enable the RTPI to make decisions on how to shape the future experience of their members.

Exploring barriers to NHS Health Checks for Leicester City Council

Enventure will be working with Leicester City Council to gain valuable insight from Leicester residents about the NHS Health Check programme in order to design new communications material.


This work will be delivered in phases over a four month period, focusing on gathering qualitative data through focus groups and workshops to explore awareness and experiences of NHS Health Checks, barriers towards attending them and what communication messages would encourage more Leicester residents to take up the offer. A total of six focus groups will take place in the first phase, ensuring that target audience is represented by engaging with separate male and female groups with different ages and ethnicities.


Once Leicester City Council are provided with the findings from the focus groups, a feedback workshop will also be delivered in order to help shape Leicester City Council’s new design of communications materials. Further focus groups will test and evaluate these designs, using original participants from the first phase of focus groups.
