Open Day success in West Parley
>21 July 2011
A huge turnout to see the Draft Parish Plan
Organisers of the West Parley Parish Plan were very pleased with the level of interest shown in the draft Parish Plan that was shown to Residents in an Open Day on Tuesday. About 500 residents took time to see and comment on what the draft of the Plan said about the village.
lots of interest in the Draft Parish Plan
The Plan covers a number of subjects, including roads, housing, the environment and community facilities. It is intended to sum up how residents see the future of West Parley so that Parish, District and County Council policies can be guided by local views.
A number of local clubs and groups showed what they do and signed up new members. Residents also volunteered to join the village's bi-weekly clean up teams and become Neighbourhood Watch contacts.
Parish Plan Steering Group Chairman John Cullen says "This was a great opportunity for everyone to have their final say about the place they live in. Our Plan Survey results show that residents have a strong sense of identity here and want to be involved. It was brilliant that so many of them came along and were interested in what the village can offer and how they can join in."
Richard Heaslip, Chairman of West Parley Parish Council, says "The Open Day exceeded our expectations and residents turned out in droves. There is a growing sense of community in West Parley and more and more people are getting involved."
The feedback gained at the Open Day will be looked at and the Plan refined before being printed in the Autumn. The Parish Council has already noted the recommendations in the Plan and is working on delivering what Residents say they want.
