LETTER: Help with my coast research

I am a third-year undergraduate student studying a geography degree at Bath Spa University. For my dissertation I am researching the coastal management scheme implemented between 2011 and 2013 at Medmerry, west of Selsey. In particular, this research wishes to evaluate the changing nature of public perceptions to coastal management and risk.

This letter is inviting you to fill out an introductory questionnaire, which includes tick box and written responses. The details you fill out will be provided anonymously and any data collected will be stored and used securely, adhering to data protection rules.

You also have the right to withdraw from the research at any point without penalty up until the point of submission. The link for the online questionnaire is here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MCLJYMR

Furthermore, if you are interested in sharing your thoughts amongst a small group, a series of short focus group are being organised.

I am seeking participants for these focus groups. These will be at Selsey Town Council Exhibition hall, 55 High St, Chichester PO20 0RB on Wednesday, March 16, 5pm to 7pm and 7pm to 9pm

Please let me know if you are interested in any of the focus group sessions.
