The four West of England councils along with the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) use this data as an evidence base for planning future transport and housing needs. Reports are created for the West of England along with each local authority and reports based on locations. All employers who participated and received over 30 responses receive an individual report along with raw data and this is also the case for each employers site with over 30 responses. You are able to view the West of England and local authority reports on the 2020 Survey Results.

Each authorities Business Engagement Teams and Economic Development Teams use the data from the survey to work with employers and understand how they can support them and transport issues affecting staff travel.
