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.

Street Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey 2018

Street Parish Council is embarking on a Neighbourhood Plan for Street. A Neighbourhood Plan gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood, and shape the development and growth of their local area. This can include design of new housing, designating Local Green Spaces and where new work spaces should be developed.


The purpose of the survey is to capture the desires and aspirations of the community. Everybody that complete a survey will be entered into a raffle to win some fabulous prizes!


The survey is available online here at All entries must be completed before Friday 7th December 2018.


The results of the survey will help define the policies that make up the Neighbourhood Plan. When the Neighbourhood Plan is ‘made’ it will sit alongside Mendip District Council’s Local Plan and influence planning decisions in the future.

Ringolds Way Play Area Refurbishment

The work in Ringolds Way is progressing very quickly!  The first photo shows the climbing frame for the younger children.  The next two show the zip and frame being built for the older ones.  Swings are going in and the spinner is looking good too!

It is all looking very exciting!












Your Parish Council has arranged to have the play park at Ringolds Way completely renewed.  Many people contributed to our questionnaires a while ago and we have increased prorated all your ideas into the new design.

Work is now well underway and it is beginning to look exciting!  Keep watching for progress reports!
