MARR AREA PARTNERSHIP Storm Arwen Resilience Survey to Communities and Organisations

MARR AREA PARTNERSHIP Storm Arwen Resilience Survey to Communities and Organisations

Given the crisis caused by Storm Arwen, this survey has been compiled by the Marr Area Partnership in consultation with the Marr Area Office of Aberdeenshire Council.

Its aim is to start to identify ways in which our communities can better prepare for future extreme weather events. As a result of the survey, we aim to produce/provide practical, useful information to our communities, residents, and allied agencies to support their resilience planning activities. This is an opportunity for collective community learning, and we highly value your insights and feedback to support everyone in becoming more resilient in such situations. Apologies if you have received and completed the questionnaire already.
Thank you.

Please complete this questionnaire and email back to hilary@marrareapartnership.org.uk
or post to Marr Area Partnership, Albert Memorial Hall, Station Square, Ballater, AB35 5QB
by 24th January 2022.
