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).
To all those who took away a survey sheet from one of the coffee morning/open forum meetings but has not yet returned it, this is the last chance to get your opinions recorded before we start the second phase of the Neighbourhood Planning process. Please complete it, and hand it to one of the Steering Group, or post it in my letterbox at 1, Church Farm Cottages, Moreton Say, so that we base phase II on as many residents opinions as possible. Alternatively, complete it online by clicking here (now closed).
Groundwork UK have now approved the End of Grant Report, which marks the end of the first phase of our Neighbourhood Plan.
Thanks to Renee from SRCC, I have added a Parish Profile Document for each Parish into the documents area, along with a map of the Designated Area. The end of grant report for our first grant has been uploaded, we are now waiting to hear that it has been approved. The documents can be accessed from here.
The Communication Strategy was agreed at the last Steering Group meeting. The document has been uploaded onto the document page of this website.
On Tuesday night Norton In Hales had their Open forum event. Fortified with a Hot Pot Supper curtesy of Peter Eardly and some amazing volunteers there was a presentation from The Rural Community Charity, a quiz about the area and a robust discussion about the Neighbourhood Plan.
There are still one or two survey forms out there and we really need these to be handed in as soon as possible so that they can shape the next stage. Drop them off at the village hall or get them to Ian, Penny, Nick or Peter.
If you know anyone that has not completed the survey, could you please try and persuade them to complete it, which can be achieved in a couple of minutes by clicking here (now closed).
It is a few short questions that will guide us in the direction that we need to go with the second phase of the process. The more responses we get, the more accurate representation of residents’ wishes it will reflect.
It was great to some new faces coming along to help the Steering group last night. The more help we get, and the more survey responses we get, the more accurate a representation of everyone’s wishes the Neighbourhood Plan will represent. Keep up the good work!
