Progress to Date

Moving the project forward to an approved plan is a multi-step process which needs to follow a clear path so that the results can be externally approved and the plan shown to be based on evidence.

TVBC have a helpful Community Planning template that we are using as our guide.

There are basically five steps:

  1. Set-up
  2. Identify community needs and priorities
  3. Identify and review opportunities and options
  4. Produce a draft plan
  5. Validate and secure approval, including a local referendum

The whole process is underpinned by community involvement and communication.

Late in 2018 a detailed questionnaire was delivered to every residence in the parish with the aim of gathering resident’ views on the future of the parish. We received 599 replies (about a 40% return rate) and a summary of the results was distributed to every residence in February 2019. By clicking the links at the top of the screen you can see this analysis and also a far more detailed Power Point analysis

This has been supplemented by further consultations with businesses, clubs and other groups in the parish.

To help us move forward we are using consultants who specialise in this work to help us produce a robust plan that will satisfy both local wishes and the government inspector.

More recently we have used the results of the survey and other consultations to develop a draft vision statement and a set of Objectives.
