Aim

We are the UK’s National Innovation Centre for Ageing (NICA), and on behalf of Newcastle Gateshead Initiative (NGI) we are launching a survey to gather your views about local high streets in the context of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

We are lucky to have vibrant high streets across Newcastle – from Chillingham Road to West Road – offering a wealth of retail choice and community-focused services. Unfortunately, as we look ahead to the phased reopening of our high streets, we know the businesses we love and rely on face a challenging time.

Our retailers, cafes, bars and services can be proud of the innovation they have shown since the pandemic began, making use of outdoor spaces and improving online and local delivery services, but what does the future hold? Help us understand what local people want from their high streets by responding to this survey.

Volunteer Criteria

The survey is open to anyone who lives and works in Newcastle.

What will I be asked to do?

You will be asked a series of questions about your local high street. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

When and where?

The survey can be completed online anytime until Friday 16th April 2021

Will I get anything for taking part?

At the end of the survey you will be given the option to be entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Grainger Market Delivery gift card or a £50 gift card for another Newcastle high street business of your choosing.

I live in Gateshead and would like to take part in this survey too, but won't bother trying now having read Ianeon's comments. Pity. Thanks for letting us know, Ianeon.

You say: "The survey is open to anyone with an interest in their local high streets. Although the project is based in Newcastle, we would like to hear from people from any postcode area."

But Question 3 states: "Which of the following areas best describes where you currently live in Newcastle upon Tyne? Please select one:"

But I couldn't cos I don't live in Newcastle.

Question 7 - *Which of the following would you consider to be your local high street? Please select one:

I can't answer this because I don't live in Newcastle:(

The survey wouldn't let me go past Question 10 because I didn't answer Question 7

Is it me, or.......................
