Community Consultation Events
We are making progress with the Neighbourhood Plan. We have heard from Locality, following our designation and they are now carrying forward our approved request for technical assistance. In the first case this will be a housing needs survey. We have also put together a draft questionnaire which I will circulate to you once a few changes have been made. Our rational has been to keep it short and provide lots of opportunity for open responses rather than creating a long tick list. Please do let me know if you think it needs further changes. We have divided up the Parish into smaller areas and are asking local residents to act as Neighborhood Coordinators. The Coordinators will work with their neighbours with regard to the questionnaire. It is a flexible role which will include delivery and return of the questionnaires but also discussing the contents of the questionnaire with their neighbours and helping them fill it in where appropriate. The SU are working on a different questionnaire for students and we are writing to local businesses asking them how they would like to be consulted. If you would like to volunteer to be a Neighbourhood Coordinator and have not yet done so, please drop us a line. We are particularly short of volunteers on Campus.
We are holding a series of Open Consultation Events to launch the questionnaire. I will post the following on Keele Parish Website and leaflets will be coming through doors but please tell your neighbours about these events. They are ‘drop in’ events and we are hoping they will be really well attended. There will be an opportunity for visitors to leave their comments about what they would like to see in Keele in the future
