The Blewbury Neighbourhood Plan steering group will be doing a research survey in October to find out about the need for housing within the village.
As you may already know, Blewbury is drawing up a Neighbourhood Plan. This will set out the community’s views on the sort of place they would like the village to be in the future.
The Housing Needs Survey will provide some of the evidence that is needed for the plan. It will help to find out what demand there is for new housing from within Blewbury and what sort of accommodation might be required. We will also be seeking your opinions on local amenities and infrastructure within the village. There are more details of the Survey here.
The Neighbourhood Plan is an important opportunity to shape our future for the better – but we need to hear from all sections of the community. Although the survey is voluntary, a high response rate is essential and we very much hope your household will choose to take part.
Volunteers will be carrying out the survey from late September and throughout October. A questionnaire will be hand delivered to each household, together with detailed instructions on how to complete it and who to contact if help is needed.
We are still looking for people to help with delivery and collection. If you are interested in volunteering, two training sessions are being held at the village hall, on 17 September at 8pm and 21 September at 4pm (contact Nick Chancellor to register for one of the sessions – O7935 54697l).
