Having had a first pass at categorising the comments that were added to the Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire, we are now moving onto the next stage which will be to prepare the draft plan. This will involve gathering all the evidence, answers and comments from all stages of the process and turning it into a set of policies to be approved.
We had the first Steering Group meeting of 2021 last night, and as a part of that we drew the 3 prizes (one per parish) from the survey responses. The winners will be notified in due course. We now move on to phase 2 of the Neighbourhood Plan, which is to turn all the information we have gathered over the last couple of years into policies to be applied across the parishes.
The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and virus-free New Year.
We now have the first draft of the survey results and will be looking at them over the festive period.
Stay safe, everyone.
Draft survey results
We now have the first draft of the survey results. Too early for general distribution yet, but the steering group will be looking at this over Christmas and the New Year and considering how this will affect policies.
Have a brilliant Christmas despite the restrictions and a prosperous, virus-free New Year from all of us in the Steering Group.
Survey results being compiled
The survey now being closed, the results are being entered and compiled, so that we can take your views into account when the neighbourhood plan policies are written. Thanks very much to everyone who has participated. We had 159 responses in total, which is not a bad rate of return.
The deadline for survey returns has now passed, but while we wait for the last postal responses to trickle in you can still fill it in online for a couple of days. We have had a great response so far, but a few more will make the results even more meaningful.
Neighbourhood Housing Survey – Just over a week to go!
We’re getting in survey responses by post and online – this is brilliant! All problems with the survey site seem to be sorted so with just over a week to go make sure you get your responses in and take your chance at winning a £100 grocery voucher.
Remember: you can answer the survey on line OR you can complete the paper survey and just pop it in the pre-paid envelope then into the post.
Neighbourhood Plan Housing Survey
The good news is we’re getting responses to the Housing Survey -Excellent! The more responses we get the better the results will be. Remember your views are vitally important in this.
The bad news, we’ve had a technical hitch over the weekend and some responders have been moved on to the prize draw having only completed the first 20 or so questions.
What are we doing about it? We’re moving quickly. The survey has been closed whilst our providers effect a fix and it should be live again by early afternoon. If your response has been affected, don’t worry we will contact you. As far as we can see it has only affected two or three people but investigations will tell us more.
If you’re not keen on answering online don’t worry you can fill in the paper form and just drop it into a letter box and it will be counted.
Don’t forget you have a chance to win £100 of groceries in the prize draw just complete the form at the end of the survey or the one included in the envelope. Remember your responses are anonymous and your views of very important to the neighbourhood plan so keep on sending in the forms or filling in the online survey.
The Big Questions
The survey is now live! If you look on the Home page, you will find a link to a separate page that has the information sheet and a link to start the survey. Or you can follow the link below. Please note, that as we are not allowed to collect personal data (including logins), it is not possible to save the questionnaire and complete it later, meaning that it will have to be completed in one sitting.
Please fill it in, it is the future of your parish that is at stake!
Please note that responses are requested by the end of October, but you may be able to still enter them for a very short while after that, as we wait for the last postal responses.
The Big Questions
The surveys have now starting hitting the mats of all residents of the three parishes. We would urge everyone to fill this in, as the wishes of as many residents as possible give us the best chance to produce a plan that will encompass the views of all and influence any planning decisions going forward.
