St Clement Parish Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire

Your Parish needs you to help create the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan is a legal document that will guide future development for the whole parish until 2030 to help support, protect and preserve the character of our beautiful parish. The plan can set out where any new development will go, what type it will be and and what sort of facilities are needed to make your parish a better place to live and work.  Before any planning proposals are made the Parish Council wants to find out what the local community thinks about the Parish and their village. To do this the Parish Council want to hear from as wide a range of local people as possible.

Can you spend a few minutes answering some questions to make sure you have your say in the future of the village? This is the first stage in the process and there will be further opportunities to comment on the draft plan. For further information visit the Neighbourhood Planning website at www.stclementneighbourhoodplan.org.uk.

The closing date for returns is 23 November 2016.

Please note that your details will not be discussed or shared with a third party.

Thank you in advance for participating.

Yours sincerely
Colin Elliott (Chair of the St Clement Neighbourhood Development Steering Group).
