believe are important for Quorn’s future. You are now invited to
attend this Open Day and provide feedback on the Neighbourhood Plan so
far. Remember! this is your Plan and it is now time to:

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.

working together, we can ensure that the village develops in a way that
meets the needs of everyone.

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.

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 questionnaire during normal opening times.
