Please have a say in the future of our Parish. 


I’m sure this is as important to you as it is to us. We have been putting together an 

up-to-date questionnaire to find out what our residents feel about how we shape 

the countryside that we call home over the next 10 years.


   We would like to collect your views on specific topics that have been raised so far from Drop-Ins last October and other discussions and as the Covid-19 restrictions have partially lifted we are now in a position to ask

Every Household in the Parish to fill in a

Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire 


It would greatly assist us if as many as possible could complete online

To do this we need you to register your email address together with 

your post code and property address to



It will be kept confidentially by the Parish Council 

solely for use of the neighbourhood plan steering group

Receipt of this Newsletter does not constitute registration for the questionnaire 

Alternatively a paper copy will be delivered by hand to your property.


We would also be very grateful if you could support any neighbours 

who might need a helping hand in making their selection 

or who would perhaps prefer a telephone call from one of us.

We look forward to receiving your preference.


Thank you
