 The Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) relates to the whole of the Parish including Bourne town, the villages of Dyke, Cawthorpe and Twenty and to the surrounding countryside. It is concerned with shaping our built environment. It can help to protect important open spaces and buildings, for example; it can define where building can take place; and it can influence what new buildings look like and the kind of development that we want to see. Once the Plan is adopted it will be used to determine planning applications.

The Town Council is responsible for preparing the Plan but has delegated this task to a Steering Group of members of the Town Council and local community. However, we want to involve the wider community by asking for your views at key stages.

Please note that the introduction to each section of the survey is only a precis of the information provided in the Vision and Objectives consultation paper found on the face of the website at www.bourneparishneighbourhoodplan.org.uk. We recommend that you read the Vision and Objectives paper before completing this online survey. This is because it outlines in greater detail the key issues facing Bourne today and helps to explain the background to the various questions in the survey. 

The purpose of the survey is to ask you: 

if we have identified the key issues facing Bourne or if there are other issues that should be addressed as part of the BPNP; 
if the draft vision outlines, in broad terms, what you would like Bourne to be like by 2036; and 
if the draft objectives adequately set out what needs to be done to achieve the vision. 
However, we have also included some other questions where it would be helpful to know how strongly you agree or disagree with a particular idea. 
We welcome comments on as many or as few of the questions as you wish to answer.
