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 www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/street-np 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 www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/street-np. 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.
