You may remember reading that a group of volunteers were preparing a consultation questionnaire to compile the Ruddington Village Plan – a report which ‘will present your views for Ruddington’s future’ and you may have wondered how this project is getting along and what stage it has reached.
One year down the line and many of the sections you asked the group to cover have been discussed with a list of relevant questions already outlined. Recently we have been compiling questions based on road safety, police presence, access to premises for people with disabilities, the general appearance of the village and what residents would like to see happening in the village open spaces. Some residents and business people have volunteered to come along and help with specific items to ensure the questions are appropriate and that the village can act on the responses. The group is also mindful that the Parish Council has several projects in hand, that ‘planning’ and ‘transport’ are constantly changing and these changes also need taking in to account.
We hope that the questionnaire will be completed before summer and then begins the bigger process of consulting with you. This is a very important community led project and everyone will be encouraged to participate, give their opinions and respond to the questionnaire to ensure your views are represented. To keep up with our work to date you can read the minutes on the Ruddington Parish Council website under Village Plan. If you have any questions for the group, please email VillagePlan@RuddingtonParishCouncil.gov.uk
