Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - Next Steps Open Day

Posted to website December 18th 2017

Thank You for your active support of the development of the Neighbourhood Plan for Quorn.

In August 2017, over 150 of you took the time and trouble to come to speak to us at the first Open Day. Now over 400 people have completed the questionnaires including more than 60 young people. The community and council volunteers have been working on your returns and analysing what you have told us. This will enable us to draft the policies reflecting those issues you 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:

Tell us … have we got these policies right to serve Quorn as our village inevitably develops and grows? These are the policies that will influence future planning decisions.

The important date for your diary is Saturday 24th March 2017 - 10.00am to 1.00pm at the Village Hall where the volunteers will be available to answer any questions and talk to you about their interesting work.

Free refreshments will be available - so come on down to the village hall to meet with neighbours and have your say!!

If you require further information or assistance getting to the venue, contact Paul Goodman in the Parish Office.
 


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!
