Likes, Dislikes & Wants Results

  1. 1. • In January and February 2012 we received responses to a simple Likes, Dislikes and Wants survey, where residents were asked to state their 3 most important views of secondary school provision for Sevenoaks in these three different categories.• Some did this by completing a short paper form which was printed in the Chronicle and available at the Leisure Centre and the Lodge Coffee Shop at the Stag. Others registered your thoughts online via an electronic survey.• As an “open ended” piece of data collection where residents could state, in free format, what you thought about these aspects, it was not particularly scientific, but it has highlighted some perceptions of issues which we will investigate more thoroughly.
