1. WHICH WAY FOR THE FUTURE OF HIGH LEGH? Your further views are needed!


Complete and submit the survey by the deadline of Sunday May 20th and be eligible for our PRIZE DRAW.  Three winners, chosen randomly, will receive a £20 voucher for either M&S or High Legh Garden Centre.

Completing this questionnaire will enable us to get an accurate view of your preferences and those of High Legh residents as a whole on more detailed issues following the survey in 2016. This will then enable us to write policies to include in the draft Neighbourhood Plan on which there will then be a further consultation.

To help you to understand the issues prior to completing the questionnaire there will be an exhibition in the Village Hall with people on hand to answer your questions as follows:
·        7.30pm – 9.30pm, Wednesday, 18th April
·        1.00pm – 4.30pm, Saturday, 21st April, and
·        1.00pm – 4.30pm, Sunday, 22nd April

Copies of the Exhibition Panels and Questionnaire have also been distributed to each household. They provide the background to the Neighbourhood Plan and details of the issues on which the questionnaire is based. You will need to refer to them in answering the questions. They are also available on-line at www.hlnp.org.
 Anyone of any age who lives in High Legh can complete the survey.
-     Please complete as much of it as possible.
-     It should take no more than 15 minutes or so to complete in full.
All responses will be treated confidentially and responses will be anonymous.

If you have any questions, or if you need further hard copies of the survey, please contact Mrs Doreen Walker on 01925 754818 or via e-mail to clerk@highleghparishcouncil.gov.uk. Alternatively, you can download a copy from the website www.hlnp.org.

Thank you,

 NB Please also note that:
·  If there are to be any improvements or new facilities in High Legh there is no guarantee that these can be provided unless funding is made available.

·  There are a variety of sources of funding which may be available for some improvements or new facilities and some would require contributions from housing development to enable them to go ahead.

·   It is not possible to be precise at this stage as to how much housing would be required to deliver any specific improvement or new facility but the larger the number of houses, the larger the potential contribution.

·  This will be particularly significant later in 2018 when Cheshire East plans to introduce a Community Infrastructure Levy which is a very significant charge per dwelling (depending on the type of house this could be up to £25,000) to be paid by developers to Cheshire East 25% of which will be passed onto the Parish Council for use in providing community infrastructure.

·   What is important is that we need to be clear about what is most important to High Legh residents so that priorities can be established and policies written

·  For any housing development to happen it will need a willing land owner and to be commercially viable, and it would have to meet the needs identified in the May 2016 survey.

·   Regardless of the Neighbourhood Plan there is a likelihood that some organic increase in housing will continue to take place as permitted by existing policy. What the Neighbourhood Plan process can influence is what type of housing is acceptable to the community.
