Options Consultation Headlines
We promised to give you feedback before Christmas on the recent questionnaire. The headlines are below but we will follow this up with more detailed analysis in the New Year. Once again thank you to all who took the time to respond it was magnificent
How many people responded?
We had just over 460 people participating (taking into account whether responses were made individually or from households).
The approximate breakdown by area was:
North Cadbury 50%
We had a good response rate from each settlement, which has provided a good basis for our analysis
Thought to be good or very good by about 4 out of 5 respondents with some further suggestions made that we will need to consider, such as placing more emphasis on improved facilities, and retention of the character of the area
Approach on Housing Mix, Employment and Facilities
Over 90% felt the findings were about right, not surprisingly however we received over 100 added comments particularly on Housing and certain facilities issues
Sites for Housing and Employment
A total of 8 sites were clearly supported by residents with another 5 locations having a borderline level of response. 7 of the sites were subject to outright rejection, with what could be described as an overwhelming level of opposition.
We received a large number of responses to these questions which we will carefully consider. We have also had further contacts from landowners about their site options and possible changes, that we also need to consider.
Once we have done this, our next step will be to discuss the possible site choices with SSDC in the New Year
Local Green Spaces and Important Views
Green Spaces and Views are clearly very important to residents of the Parish with at least 80%, and sometimes nearly 100% of people saying these were very important. We had a large number of comments and suggestions to look through, and from this have identified at least 4 more locations to assess as local green spaces (we will try to contact the landowners of these sites), and at least 5 more views to consider
Walking, Cycling & Riding
We sought to understand how well footpaths, bridleways, routes and cycleways were used. We have more than enough evidence to show that the routes we had identified were well used. As this was quite a high priority from the household survey we conducted in February we also wanted to know if you had any suggestions on new routes and where they might run. We had over 70 comments/suggestions which we are now sifting through!
