Visitor Survey 26 May 2013

Here are the results of the first Cleeve Common Visitor Survey, carried out on Sunday 26 May 2013.  Thank you to those volunteers who gave up their Sunday morning to help with this survey.  The information collected will not only help us in managing activities on the Common, but can also be used to support funding bids.

Highlights from this survey include:

  • Over 1000 people visit the Common on a busy weekend day
  • Most come by car (62%) but a quarter come on foot; smaller numbers travel by bike, horse or bus
  • Two-thirds live locally, less than 5 miles away (i.e. Cheltenham, Bishops Cleeve, etc)
  • Nearly three quarters (73%) are regulars
  • Three quarters come to walk or run on the Common
  • Almost 4 out of 5 (79%) say what they enjoy most is the openness and views
  • A large number complimented the Board on doing a good job of managing the Common
