What has changed in the area in the last 5 years?

In 2009 Sustaining Dunbar carried out a survey to gauge how easy it was for people living in the Dunbar District to: conserve energy, access local food, walk, and cycle or use public transport to get to school or work, work locally and feel connected and know more about what is going on in your area. We are now carrying out a survey to gauge if you have noticed any improvements in these areas.
