Strete Neighbourhood Plan - Recording Responses

At the meeting on Monday 4th April, 12 members worked very industriously in teams of 3 to start the process of recording the responses on the survey forms.
Each team had 30 response forms.
By following the agreed recording procedure, each team worked their way through the forms and the majority of the information on all 4 batches of 30 forms was completed by 10pm.
That represents about half of the forms received.
Another meeting has been arranged for Monday 11th April starting at 7pm, when it is hoped the remaining forms can be completed
All available volunteers are requested to attend for as long as they can to help with the recording process.
The results will be summarised once all have been completed and then publicised through the website, newsletter and public notice boards.
It is hoped that this will be completed by 25th April to allow the Steering Group to review and discuss the results in readiness for a Community Consultation Meeting provisionally planned for 9th May.
