In September 2016 Aberystwyth University conducted an indepth survey of 162 residents of Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn, supplemented by a further 72 shorter street surveys. This report provides a summary of the findings.

The survey is part of a wider research project, “Global-Rural”, which is investigating the ways processes of globalisation are experienced by rural communities in different parts of the world. Over the past two years the research team have engaged with people in Newtown through interviews, focus groups and fieldwork research. They have been trying to find out what it takes for a small town to survive in a global age.
This survey was an extension of that work, aiming to collect views of residents about life in their town and how they would see the town changing, whilst also trying to understand more about how they view ‘globalisation’. Included in the survey were questions suggested by Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council. This report is prepared summarises the findings of the research that relate to those survey questions of direct relevance to the town and Town Council.
