Dear Householders of Crowan Parish,

We are writing to inform you about the Neighbourhood Development Plan for the Parish we are about to start work on.  This is a new way for you as part of the  community to have a real say in shaping the future development of the Parish.  This power was introduced through the Localism Act 2011 and Crowan Parish Council has formed a Steering Group to undertake the process of producing the Plan. But we really need your help to ensure your  vision and priorities for the future of the Parish are part of the Plan. Please complete and return this Survey by  30th March 2015.

The two main ways in which you can get involved are:-

Public Survey    A major part of the process of delivering the Plan, is a survey of the views of you, our Residents by a questionnaire on important topics such as Housing, Education, Recreation, Highways, Health, Environment, Public Transport and Industry in our area.  This survey is an easy way to get involved in the process, by answering the questions and adding further issues and priorities so we can start to bring together and analyse what you want for the future.  We cannot emphasise enough that it is you who own the Plan so please do take the opportunity to have your say and make sure the Plan represents your priorities.

Public Events      The survey will be followed up by a series of Public Events Crowan, Leedstown, Praze, Nancegollan and Townshend, plus an information stand  at Praze Fair Show 2015 where you will be able to view an early draft of the  Plan and input your views. Prior to this, we are seeking volunteers with knowledge and experience to help with preparing the Neighbourhood Plan, so if you could devote a few hours or more to assist then please email our Clerk clerk@crowan-pc.gov.uk with your contact details.

Thank you for taking the time to read this initial communication about the Plan, there is a calendar of the Public Events below and we look forward to your response and support.

Yours sincerely

Crowan Parish Council
