Neighbourhood Plan Drop-in Session
24th April 2023 held at Poultec 10:30-18:45
23 February 2023
The Mattishall Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group recently carried out a community consultation exercise to find out how you would like the village to evolve into the future. We asked three questions:
What do you think works well in the village, What doesn’t work so well, and What do you see should be the priorities for the future?
The Parish Council would like to thank all of you who submitted your views- we really do appreciate it. We have received over 100 responses from you both online and via the questionnaires in Miscellanea. The summary of your responses are as follows:
What works well?
Sense of community
Shops/cafes/PO etc, village facilities
Access to the countryside
What doesn’t work well?
Parking- village centre and near Mattishall News
Priorities for change
Improve Pharmacy and GP access/service*
Improve bus service**
Limit further development
Improve village appearance
Reduce speeding traffic
* The survey was carried out at the time of high demand together with other issues affecting the surgery and Pharmacy
** The survey was carried out before the bus timetable/frequency was changed in February.
Your survey findings will help shape the policies and projects that will be included in the new Plan. Our planning consultants are now preparing the next stage and we will be going out to ask your views again. We need to ensure we have a Plan that will mean Mattishall remains a great place to live and that any future development has a positive impact on our village.
We will be holding a “drop-in” session where you will be able to view our draft proposals and find out more about what we are proposing. Please come along and have your say on the important final shape of the Plan.
