Glastonbury Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire

During January 2018, a team of volunteers hand delivered 4500 Neighbourhood Plan questionnaires to every household in Glastonbury.  The results are already coming back in:

Gerard Tucker, Neighbourhood Plan Officer, said “You think you know a community but it is not until you undertake a questionnaire on this scale, that you realise the community has some wonderful ideas. We have now received in excess of 800 responses which is fantastic, in addition to 70 from children, but we’d really love to receive more! Please don’t miss your chance to participate and make sure your ideas about the future of Glastonbury are heard”.

Glastonbury residents have until 14th February to return their questionnaires; either in person to St Dunstan’s House or mailing it back in the Freepost envelope provided.

And big thanks to Holly and Bailey for their lovely drawings:

 How can you get involved?

In January 2018 a Glastonbury Neighbourhood Plan Consultation Questionnaire will be delivered to every household in Glastonbury.  Please take the time to read it through carefully and respond to as many of the questions as you can. There is plenty of space to add your own thoughts / opinions / creative ideas to help shape the type of development you want to see in our community.

Through our roadshows and consultation events in 2016/17 we’ve listened with interest to over 1,000 responses. But we are very aware that many of you have not had the opportunity to have your say: to add your voice – your views, thoughts, and ideas – to Glastonbury’s Neighbourhood Plan. That is the purpose of this questionnaire: to seek your opinions and then add them to the responses so far.

The Steering Committee has taken all the comments from the previous surveys, consultations, and discussions and we have written these up as statements. We would like you to respond with your thoughts to each statement. Have we been listening correctly?

If only one section is of interest to you, then please complete this section and return it to us. We would rather have a partially completed questionnaire than none at all.

We want to hear from as many Glastonbury residents as possible!

Public Consultations

During the summer of 2017 the Neighbourhood Plan roadshow visited St John’s Church, St Edmund’s playing field, Benedict Street playing field, Cinnamon Lane and St Dunstan’s Park. Residents throughout town visited the roadshow and were able to ask questions and discover more about all the aspects of the Neighbourhood Plan.

Five hundred people from Glastonbury and outlying villages visited our Neighbourhood Plan exhibition in the Town Hall on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October 2016.  They took the opportunity to meet the team from the Nationwide Building Society and look around St. Dunstan’s House.  The response was fantastic and our pin-boards (and the white walls of St Dunstan’s House) were filled with creative suggestions about our environment, housing, recreational and green spaces.  The Steering Committee is extremely grateful to everyone who took time out to visit the exhibition. We’d also like to thank our Town Crier David Greenway who did such a sterling job in encouraging people to visit and Mary Parker and her team who provided the refreshments.  The Post It notes have been collated and will help to shape the development of the Neighbourhood Plan.
