England is now subject to National lockdown: Stay at Home restrictions. You must stay at home.
A predominately quantitative online survey was launched on Wednesday 11 November and closed on Sunday 13 December.
It was promoted through various marketing and communications to maximise consultation engagement and the subsequent response rate:
The research sought views on current sport and leisure facilities in Portsmouth, as well as attitudes towards opening a new sport and leisure centre in the city.
In total the survey received 1800 responses.
10 via telephone with the City Helpdesk, and the remaining 1790 by individuals online.
840 respondents also left their contact details to be signed up to the PCC sport and leisure bulletin.
Assuming a “total population” of 175,205 people (the latest mid-year estimate from the Office for National Statistics for people aged 16-90+ in Portsmouth), this volume of responses ensures a 95% confidence level with a margin of error of 2%, well within acceptable parameters.
