Alconbury Community Questionnaire

Alconbury Parish Council has launched this community questionnaire to understand what you would like to see for the village over the coming years.  The results will inform the Alconbury Parish Plan, which will influence how the Parish Council spends its precept (the Council Tax money used to fund the Council), responds to planning permission applications and generally how the village can be best maintained.

This is your opportunity to have your say on the future of the village – from housing and development to transport, leisure facilities and beyond.

It is up to us, as a community, to decide what is important to us.

Results will be entirely anonymous and it is open to all residents of all ages - we just ask that you live in Alconbury.  We will ask you to choose your age range so we can understand who is completing the questionnaire and whether different generations are looking for different things.

The questionnaire is not limited to one per household – we are happy for everyone to complete their own.  Please only complete it once.  Printed, email and large print copies of the questionnaire are available from the Parish Council on request.
