On behalf of the Neighbourhood Plan Group I would like to thank everyone who took time to complete the questionnaire delivered to all households in Modbury Parish in December. The run-up to Christmas is a busy time so your response was especially appreciated. At the time of writing, with completed questionnaires still being counted, it is clear that we have achieved a very satisfactory response rate from which the views of residents of Modbury Parish can be well represented in the planning process.
I would also like to thank all the members of the NPG who put in a lot of hard work designing the questionnaire, organising distribution and collection, organising the site information display and delivering and collecting questionnaires. All NPG members are volunteers and have given generously of their time and effort.
For anyone who was not at home when the questionnaires were collected, it’s not too late to have your say. Please deliver your completed questionnaire to the Parish Council office as soon as possible so we can include it in the analysis and report.
So what happens now?
During January the data from each questionnaire, including your freehand comments, will be transferred to spreadsheets to enable each of the main areas to be analysed in detail.
Questionnaire results will then be combined with all the other information we have collected from community consultations over the past 18 months to form the basis of the Neighbourhood Plan. Work on the Plan will be going on during the spring and we will keep you updated on progress via the Messenger and the NPG website: www.modburynpg.co.uk
If you have any questions or would like further information on the Neighbourhood Plan we would be pleased to hear from you. We can be contacted either by email via the website, by Facebook or by dropping a letter into the Parish Council Office.
