An opportunity for you to air your views! – 27 February 2018

The last time you were asked to contribute to the Community Vision, otherwise known as ‘CV4HP16’, was back in 2007. A questionnaire was circulated to all local households as part of a Market Town Health Check. View the resulting Market Town Health Check Report  (Spring 2009).

Great Missenden & Prestwood Revitalisation Group (GMPRG) is now launching an update of the Community Vision, to see what still needs to be done from the last action plan, to discover new community ideas and promote them to local statutory bodies and to initiate projects that will stimulate a renewed sense of community.

GMPRG would like to know what you like and what you dislike, what your needs might be over the coming years and what your priorities would be for the future to help fulfil these needs. Also what environmental, community or social matters do you think are in need of improvement?

Whilst speeding, parking and potholes are important issues, the authorities responsible for these are the District and County Councils. However, the Community Vision update will address smaller scale projects that will also improve village life.  See 4 centre pages of Issue 53 March/April 2018 of the Source for HP16.
