East Lothian Council COVID-19 Rural Economy Survey

Closed 31 Aug 2021

Opened 15 Sep 2020


The Council’s Connected Economy Rural Recovery Group would like to hear from people in East Lothian’s rural communities about their experience of COVID-19 and its impact on rural businesses and the rural economy. The Group is made up of local Councillors, Council Officers, rural sector representatives, rural businesses, and community members.




Why your views matter

To assist our planning, we have developed this survey to collect information on local experiences and ideas for projects and support . We are interested in what positive changes have occurred in the last few months, what local communities are worried about as we move out of lock-down, what projects or initiatives have helped so far, and what could be done going forward to support the rural economy in East Lothian. There is no planned closing date for the survey as we would like to continue to hear from people over the coming months.

We would be grateful if you could share this survey via your own networks.
