From today and until Friday November 7th 2014, people across Ireland are invited to access and complete the survey online at www.yourplaceandmine.ie. The survey aims to gather the views of the general public across Ireland and will take just 20-30 minutes to complete. In October the research team will work with local research leaders, taking to the streets in parts of Ireland to gather more views.
Speaking today, Emmett Scanlon, who is leading this research project, said,
“We are delighted to launch this project and we hope everyone will participate and complete this survey. We encourage people to share this survey among their community and get people involved. The built environment belongs to us all and we need a better evidence base to inform the challenging decisions we are taking in Ireland. We need to know what citizens think about local and national issues such as housing for example. We need to learn if people wish to participate more in discussions about their built environment. Our intention is to publish and make new and useful data available to housing, design and built environment policy makers, giving them a real opportuinty to include the attitudes, views and opinions of the Irish public in their future work.”
