Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Event 12-02-2019

Street Parish Council are hosting an open evening from 5pm to 8pm on the 12th February 2019 at Street Parish Rooms in Leigh Road. The event will be a drop in session, allowing people to view the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan for Street and the results from the Community Survey.

The event also provides an opportunity for you to get involved by signing up to join the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. We’re looking for people that are passionate about Street and have skills that can help Street Parish Council develop the Neighbourhood Plan. You may be somebody with a great analytical mind, someone that knows everything about the history of Street, a former town planner or you could be a graphic design guru that can help with production for promotional materials. We’re looking for a diverse mix of people that can help add value to the Neighbourhood Plan.

Throughout 2019 we’ll have several meeting as a steering group at different key stages of the Neighbourhood Plan development. These will typically take the form of an evening meeting held at the Parish Rooms.

We look forward to seeing you on the 12th February.

BCU1 14012019 Telephone Scam

A telephone scam is circulating across the county where residents have received telephone calls from people claiming to be from Westminster Police. The caller states that they are investigating a crime or have a suspect in custody who has their bank details. The caller then asks them to reveal their card details for checking. A second call is often made a short while later claiming to be from their bank. Again this appears to be part of the scam. Please remember never to give bank details to anyone you do not know or trust and do not continue conversations with persons you do not know or trust. If you experience a similar call, please report it direct to the national fraud and cybercrime centre, Action Fraud on 0300-1232040 or via their website at

Street Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey 2018 – December Update

Posted responses to the Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey 2018

The Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey has been in the wild since mid November. I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to those residents that did not receive a copy of the survey through the post – our distributors let us down by not delivering to every household in Street. All future campaigns will be handled by alternative distributors.

If  you haven’t completed a questionnaire, it is still live on Survey Monkey and we’d love to hear your thoughts on life in Street. Please go to to complete your survey and have your say.

We’ve received almost 700 responses to the survey so far. Due to the amount of responses we’re taking a bit longer to process all of the data but we will be in a position to move the development of the Neighbourhood Plan along in the New Year.
