Quorn Neighbourhood Plan Consultative Survey
Posted to website October 15th 2017
The Neighbourhood Plan offers the chance for all residents and business
owners to have their say on the future development within the parish and
to influence how the village evolves.
Quorn faces many challenges and opportunities over the coming years. By
working together, we can ensure that the village develops in a way that
meets the needs of everyone.
The Neighbourhood Plan Advisory Committee organised an open event on 19th
August 2017 in the Village Hall and 157 residents attended and expressed
opinions. The aim of this event was to help engage the community in the
development of the Plan and to seek comments on the emerging topics; these
included the local green space and environment; community facilities and
amenities; housing and design; transport and employment. Key stakeholders
were also invited to express their views on how they wished to see the
Building on these comments, it is now time to seek the views of the wider
community. Wtth this is mind, two questionnaires have been devised, one
for the adults and one for people under 18.
The questionnaires will be available to complete online from 6th to 30th
Paper copies can be obtained from Quorn
Parish Council and from the Quorn Community Library at Rawlins Community
College. Completed paper copies can be returned to either of these.
The Library is also offering use of their public computers to complete
the questionnaire during normal opening times.

Questionnaires must be returned by 30th November 2017. Every completed

An important date for your diary is Saturday 19th August 2017, 10.00am
to1.00pm. This will be the first village ‘Open event’ and
will take place in the Village Hall. It is an opportunity for the Quorn
community to find out about Neighbourhood Planning and what it can and
can’t do. It is our chance to tell the local community what has
been achieved to date and what still needs to take place but importantly,
it is your chance to have a say. Who knows you may even be willing to
contribute and have something to offer to the process moving forward.
People will be there to answer any questions and there will be display
boards with relevant and local information on, guidance notes about neighbourhood
planning, examples of other Neighbourhood Plans, the chance for you to
make your comments and theme group interest forms (for people to confirm
interest if they wish to become involved). People will also be encouraged
to identify suitable sites for environmental protection and any housing
So, this is your chance to come and see what’s happening and to
have your say. The Quorn Neighbourhood Plan is facilitated by the Parish
Council but is a Community project. Oh! And refreshments (free) will be
available ... so come on down.
