Social-economic impacts of Artificial Surfing Reefs

Thank you for your interest in participating with this research.

With Europe’s first Artificial Surfing Reef constructed in Boscombe, Dorset in 2009 and further interest in Wales and Cornwall alongside other European countries, this independent research aims to highlight the impacts on the local community. Your responses to this questionnaire will give detailed background information into the socio-economic impacts of structures such as these for future planners and policy makers.

When completing the following questionnaire please try to fill in the questionnaire as honestly and thoroughly as possible. We understand your time is valuable and we have therefore developed a questionnaire which should not take long to complete (15 minutes).

Your opinion matters and your responses are therefore incredibly important if the results are to truly reflect the stakeholder community.

Answers given will remain confidential. By taking part in this questionnaire you are consenting to the use of the data you provide for the purpose of this independent research.

Thank you in advance for your participation,
