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 village develop.

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 November 2017:

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.

For more information, visit our Quorn Neighbourhood Plan section.

Your feedback is very important and this is the chance to have your say. Questionnaires must be returned by 30th November 2017. Every completed questionnaire will be entered in a £50 cash prize draw .Good Luck!

Neighbourhood Plan Open Day

Posted to website August 17th 2017

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 development.

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.
