Wellow Neighbourhood Plan

A big thank you to all residents who have completed the Neighbourhood Plan survey.

We have had a rush of responses (mostly paper, but a few on-line) towards the end of the 30 November date that we initially indicated as the end date for the survey.

To further encourage as big a community response as we can get we kept the on-line survey open until Sunday 9 December.

After this date the on-line survey capability was closed.

During last week paper versions were collected from the various business and parish locations with post boxes.

These are now being entered into the system we are using to support our analysis.

The community survey is a part of the ongoing engagement process on the neighbourhood plan.

We will also be consulting with businesses and clubs in the parish.

For those of you that have not responded to the survey we still very much want listen to any views you may have on the future directions for the parish.

Details on how to contact the team and steering committee dates are available on the website.

Do you own land that has a watercourse or drainage ditch on or adjacent to it?

Answer: Yes –You are therefore a ‘riparian landowner’ and you are responsible for maintaining those watercourses.
