Community Vision Update

An opportunity for you to air your views!

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).

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.

With the deadline date of 15 May 2018 having passed, GMPRG is now collating and analysing the 228 responses that have been received.  We will update you when further information and results are available.

In the meantime, many thanks to everyone who took the time and made the effort to contribute to the Community Vision Update.
