Shopper Surveys

The Connecting Dunbar bid stated that shopping surveys would be carried out to gain information on where customers travelled to and from and how, also to highlight travel problems with shopping in town.  Unfortunately, at the time the shopping surveys were due to take place, a planning application for a major out of town retail development was being considered, and it was thought that this issue would become the focus of survey responses, making objective analysis impossible.  It was therefore decided to instead carry out the study of pupil travel behaviour during the P7/S1 transition year described in the page on school surveys.
