Public views to inform the content of the Neighbourhood Plan have been collected in a variety of ways:

  • initially, a priority survey in 2015 (via questionnaires and public meetings) was carried out which determined which themes to be included in the plan and the types of policies needed
  • on going engagement (via questionnaires, meetings, email correspondence, comments posted on this website) with residents, community groups, the County Council, the University, schools, artists, developers and businesses refined and further developed the policies
  •  a formal consultation on the draft plan in 2017 confirmed that the policies were supported, with some changes required
  • a formal consultation on the amended draft plan in 2019
