To develop a Town Investment Plan for Alnwick, it is vital for us to learn more about the town from your perspective. We have launched a new survey and if you live, work, study, visit, or run a business in the town we encourage you to use this to have your say on developing plans for Alnwick.

We are asking you to share your feelings on the best and worst aspects of the town and the things that you would like to see change.
