Your opportunity to help shape the future of Desford Parish is imminent!
A Neighbourhood Plan provides the opportunity for communities to provide a positive vision for how they want their neighbourhood to develop over the next ten, ﬁfteen, twenty years.
It is a massively influential document that means your community can choose where new homes, shops and offices are built, and have your say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided to support them.
Early in March, a questionnaire will be delivered to every household in the Parish. Full instructions will be provided on how to complete it and what to do with it afterwards.
Do not squander this vital, one-time opportunity to help shape the future of your neighbourhood. Please, please complete the questionnaire. What’s more, as an additional incentive to participate, there will be an opportunity to enter a prize draw.
If you care what happens in your neighbourhood, do not miss your opportunity to have a direct impact on its future.
Look out for the questionnaire!
Building the plan
Once the questionnaire has been issued to all parishioners in the Desford Parish, and then collected, the responses will be collated. These responses are likely to raise a number of issues of concern to local people. The working group will then recruit independent consultants to seek out and analyse relevant information about these issues, so that a strong and coherent case can be made.
The results of the responses to the questionnaire and the outcome of these consultations will then be used by the Working Group to build a Neighbourhood Plan for Desford Parish. This will then be taken to Desford Parish Council and if approved will be distributed widely within the Parish.
