Hemingway Design, which is leading a place-branding project designed to shape the future of Berwick, plans to close the survey on March 12.

More than 1,500 responses have already been submitted, revealed town clerk Gareth Davies at a meeting of Berwick Town Council on Monday.

“The engagement process appears to be successful,” he said. “It’s the most responses they have had anywhere in England.”

However, Coun Anne Forbes expressed disappointment that only some stakeholders were invited to an initial event in the town hall .

It forms part of the Welcome Visitor Project and is funded by a £304,000 grant from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund.

The bid was prepared by Berwick’s Coastal Communities team, which is working in partnership with the town council and other key stakeholders.

More views of under 34’s and people who have not visited Berwick are still wanted so residents are being asked to share the survey details as widely as possible.

Take the opportunity to complete the brief survey at bit.ly/bariberwick and provide your views or pop into the TIC or Berwick Community Trust.
