Well, we’ve all had our summer holidays, and we are now raring to go to get the Neighbourhood plan up and running. The next meeting is September 24th at Norton-in-Hales, so see you all there.
I have uploaded 4 new documents on the Documents page.
Historic England Designation Letter
Neighbourhood Planning and the Historic Environment
Waterway Proofing of Planning Policy
Planning for Waterways in Neighbourhood Plans
I have also added links on the Links page to:
The Canal & River Trust Planning Policy
Governmental Planning Policy
Several documents have been added to the Documents page, including the 3 parishes combined profile and the evidence review. More documents will be added as they are received.
We now have the collated survey results in from the 3 primary schools. We will be analysing these results to see what they can add to our plan going forward. Well done to those who gave up their daytime to help get these results.
Recently, the steering group went into the local primary schools to gather the pupils’ opinions on their parishes. Here are a couple of photographs, produced with the kind permission of the head teacher.
The online (and paper form) survey have been completed, and now the children at the schools have had their chance to give their opinions. Specially tailored sets of questions have been delivered on electronic ‘pod’ devices, which engaged the primary-aged children and allowed us to gather information about the (hopefully) future inhabitants of the villages. One popular response in Moreton Say was that they would like to see ‘thicker’ roads. Not sure how we go about that one…
We have now had the results back from the initial survey, and will be taking time to consider the results before we move onto the rest of the Neighbourhood Plan process. Watch this space…
The initial survey is now complete, and entries are closed. A big thank you to all who have taken part, and we can now start to process the results.
At the last steering group meeting, it was announced that the cut-off date for both online and paper survey responses would be Easter. Therefore, if anyone still wants to contribute, please click here (now closed)
Once the deadline has been reached, we will start collating the responses, so that we can determine what the most pressing issues are, in order to carry the process through phase 2.
To those that did not make it to a coffee morning/open forum meeting, but still want their voice to be heard, can I remind you that your opinions can be included in the Neighbourhood Planning process by filling in the online questionnaire by clicking here (now closed).
