The Neighbourhood Plan Consultation (Regulation 14) is now closed


Thank you to everyone who has responded to the consultation.

We have received responses from both residents and consultees (organisations with an interest in or responsibility for our parish). We are now collating and analysing all the comments to feed in to revisions of the plan.

Our intention is to have the next draft ready for submission to NHDC under Regulation 15 by the end of March 2018. This then leads to the formal examination and consultation conducted by NHDC (Regulation 16).

Please note that replies received after the deadline cannot be considered.

Survey and Results

The response in general, the volume and quality of information you have written has greatly exceeded expectations. The survey results were presented at a meeting on Sunday 30th April, held at Princess Helena College. Printed copies of the “Questionnaire Results” report from our market researchers were provided (one per household attending) at the meeting and then copies delivered to the remaining households in the parish.

Electronic copies of the Presentation from the Survey Results Meeting (complete with Questions and Answers,) the Survey Results Report and the questionnaires are available to download. These are all available as PDF files – please use the links on this page.

Preston Parish for the Under 10’s

As part of the survey, we also asked the under 10’s to draw and/or write what they like about living in Preston – their work seems to sum up that it is the rural setting and things you can enjoy in it, that we all say we like. Follow this link to the Portfolio Page to see larger copies.
