Scottish Borders Household Survey

Closed 25 Sep 2018

Opened 20 Jun 2018

Results Updated 15 Nov 2018

Thank you to everyone that completed the Scottish Borders Household Survey. We are in the process of analysing the results. The report will be on this site early 2019 .

The five winners of the Marks & Spencer vouchers have been notified.


We had been made aware that some questions in this survey were incompatible with some Apple devices. We have now rectified this problem. Thank you for your patience.

Scottish Borders Council would like to hear your views about issues such as quality of life in the Borders, your neighbourhood, council services and your involvement in public decision making.

We need to get the views of as many residents as possible in order to build an accurate picture of life in the Scottish Borders. This will help us plan for future services and we would like you to play #yourpart in helping us to do this.

Our 2018-2023 Corporate Plan is very different to our previous plan, we're not just saying what we're going to do, we're asking you to play #yourpart. As an individual, a family, a business, as part of a community or Third Sector organisation we are asking you to:

  • help us plan what we do with our resources
  • be involved with delivering some services
  • think differently about what you expect from us, and what you might be able to do yourself

By completing this survey you will be playing #yourpart and helping us plan what we do with our resources.

At the end of this survey is information about our Scottish Borders People's Panel. Joining our Panel is another way in which you can play #yourpart.


If you require this survey in a different language or format, e.g. large print or easy read, or require help completing it please contact the Council's Community Engagement Team at or on 01835 826626.
