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!
Can I just take this opportunity to remind you all that we need as many survey results as possible. Those of you who took forms away from the coffee mornings and open forum meetings, could I please request that these are returned to one of your steering group members, or alternatively post them to:
ATTN: Neighbourhood Plan,
1, Church Farm Cottages,
Alternatively, the survey (very quick to complete) can be filled in online by clicking here (now closed).
Deterred by the inclement weather the Adderley open forum didn’t yield the numbers that we saw in Moreton Say. There were some very useful discussions though and a number of ideas generated which will make their way into the next incarnation of the Neighbourhood Plan. A big thank you to all who came to the Village Hall on Wednesday.
Next week sees Norton In Hales open forum; more interesting ideas we hope.
Very good night at Moreton Say last night for the first of the Neighbourhood Plan open forums. During the evening between fifteen and twenty people enjoyed tea, coffee and cake before a quick briefing from Lawrence of Apt then one to one Q & A.
There were large maps covering landscape, amenity space, listed buildings and the Parish Profile. This gave people lots to discuss.
This afternoon at 2:00 and tonight at 8:00 it’s the turn of Adderley. Apt will be there again together with Renee from the Community Charity. There’s an update on where we are and all of the maps plus, at the evening event, a chance to talk to the experts about the Neighbourhood Plan.
