NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN QUESTIONNAIRE EXTENDED CLOSING DATE SEPTEMBER 29TH
The Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire 2017 Pre-Paid Reply Questionnaire has been hand delivered through resident’s doors. It is also available for online completion at the parish council website.

All residents over the age of 16+ are invited to respond. To date 263 paper copies have been returned out of the 4,000 hand delivered to residents and 94 questionnaires have been completed online, there are a further 202 online surveys that are reported as response pending, we would encourage those residents who have yet to finalise their questionnaire to do so. Yes, we know its lengthy, yes, we know it takes time to complete, but please do take the time to have your say, it really does count! A Neighbourhood Plan, usually prepared by the parish council, is complementary to the Local Plan and sets out the local community’s vision, and planning policies for future development in the parish. IT becomes a statutory document in the local development framework for the area and must be considered by SBDC when deciding planning applications. This provides a real opportunity to influence the way the parish develops in the years to come.
