Residents of Knutsford are being urged to help shape the future of their town through the Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan. Knutsford Town Council, leading on the development of the community-led plan has launched the first survey to capture people’s views on a range of topics.
The questionnaire, which is being delivered to every household in Knutsford, will help inform the first stages of creating the Neighbourhood Plan which will shape development in Knutsford alongside the Local Plan.
Covering everything from Health and Housing to Education and the Environment the survey results will form the basis of the next stages of developing the plan.
“This is an important step in developing our Neighbourhood Plan and I implore everyone to spare the time to have a say in the future of our Town” said Mayor of Knutsford, Cllr Jan Nicholson.
“It is vital that this plan has the support of the community and built on firm engagement with residents and the first stage for this is getting as many responses as possible” Cllr Nicholson added.
Households will receive a paper copy of the questionnaire with a pre-paid envelope for returns and it is also available online at www.knutsfordnp.org.uk.
“The more responses the better” was the call from Chairman of the Neighbourhood Plan Committee, Cllr Stewart Gardiner who added “We have set the survey out in theme groups and are happy for residents to choose the topics most important to them, whether that’s heritage, the Town Centre, sport or something else”
Residents who have any queries about the survey or want to find out more about the Neighbourhood Plan can visit www.knutsfordnp.org.uk or contact the Town Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01565 653 929. The survey is also available in large print and if you need help completing the questionnaire this can be arranged.
