To date 343 paper copies have been returned out of the 4,000 hand delivered to residents and 168 questionnaires have been completed online, there are a further 319 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! You do not have to answer all the questions, you can choose to only answer those you feel strongly about, your opinions matter so please do try and complete the Questionnaire as fully as possible. 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.
