Hail Weston Community led plan
It’s now nearly a year since the well-attended meeting in the village Hall when we announced the new plan for the period 2021-2026. Since then a lot has happened in the world and despite this, we have made good progress preparing the new plan.
Following the presentation last November, we have formed a steering group to formulate a strategy. Six sub groups were formed to prepare questionnaires for the following areas:
Groups and societies
Housing and development
Wildlife and environment
Crime and safety
Over the last few months the groups have been compiling their questionnaires taking the previous exercise from 2015 as their reference point and then looking at how these could be developed to become appropriate for building a plan for the next 5 years.
In the new year we will be issuing a questionnaire to every resident in Hail Weston. This will be your opportunity to have your say about how you think Hail Weston should develop in the next 5 years.
We are grateful to the Parish Council for providing financial support which will enable us to create the survey in both paper and electronic versions and to publish the final document without having to seek external funding.
Later on next year we will be launching the new plan for 2021-2026
and we will keep you informed about our timescale. We expect the plan will primarily be published as an online document but we will ensure that there are sufficient paper versions for those residents who prefer a more traditional format.
This whole exercise is a genuine community project which will be stronger for the more people that participate. We will keep you informed with our progress and look forward to engaging with as many people as possible in the new year.
