Parish Plan refresh consultation begins

poster for refreshThe opportunity to record some views as to what the Parish Plan refresh should contain was taken during the Lights switch on ceremony, when a poster session in the town hall was held. The theme was “what would we do if we had half a million pounds to spare” (worth stressing at this point that we do not have this!!) The poster we used can be seen in this article and the individual posts shown here.

To summarise, however, there were many comments about the roads, parking, speed restrictions and the like, with the High Street having the most focus, with the obvious desire to make our streets safer.

Another significant desire was to see more commercial activity, both as retail space (coffee shop, bakery etc.) but also more business space generally.

A few comments actively wanted more housing, presumably as a nod to the general need for more housing in the country but also as a recognition that more houses would help keep commercial activity in the village.

There were also comments wanting more support for children, both generally and for those with disabilities.

In all some 21 comments were recorded. If you missed this and want to be part of the conversation, please send your comments to the administrator of this website here, or contact Emma Curtis, our Parish Clerk.
