Help us write the plan — join the Consultation Group

forumpicWe want to invite all residents to join us to participate in our Neighbourhood Plan Consultation Group. This group will have the opportunity to actively shape and influence the policies and ideas in the final plan. It will operate mostly on line but there will also be opportunities to participate in focus groups and workshops from time to time.

The Plan team have reached a point through public events  and surveys where we believe we have identified the main things people want us to address in the plan. We now need residents to comment more directly on concrete policies and ideas.

What do we want you to do?

Sign up here to join our group. You will then be asked to comment and participate in short surveys and polls from time to time. Respond to those that interest you, and when you have the time. We will share ideas as they emerge from the group. Occasionally you will also be invited to participate in research groups or events. You can dedicate as little or as much time as you like to involvement in the group.

How much time will it take?

As little or as much as you are prepared to give. At no point will you receive more than one poll or survey request in a week. Requests will be short and participation is optional. We hope you will join in but it’s not obligatory.

What kind of things will I be asked about?

You might be asked to comment upon ideas to protect wildlife corridors or the style and location of potential housing developments, or it could be ideas for how we improve community recreation facilities for young people or safety on our roads. If you look through the website you will get a better understanding of the issues and ideas being considered.

Will my contributions be anonymous?

Yes, all contributions will be confidential. We are only asking for postcodes so we can ensure we have a balance of participation from across the village.

Still unsure?

Feel free to contact us and ask any other questions. We want you to feel good about getting involved in the project.
