The Limpsfield Parish Household Survey may have appeared through your letterbox already over the last week – but if you’re more likely to fill it in online, then here’s the link! Just click and fill for your chance to have a say in the future of Limpsfield…and win Prizes! Limpsfield Household Survey. The survey must be completed by May 30 2017.
Why take the survey?
Aside from taking part in local elections and going to Parish or local council meetings, the new household survey is really the one way that Limpsfield residents can have a proper say and influence the future of the Limpsfield Parish.
Results of the survey will influence what is written and proposed in the Limpsfield Neighbourhood Plan, due to be submitted later on this year.
Maybe you’re interested in planning and what gets built or not in the area; maybe you want to preserve the greenbelt or the buildings of historic interest; maybe you want to suggest some more relevant facilities and services for you and your family… Whatever it is you’re interested in as a Limpsfield resident, then the survey is your chance to play a part in shaping the future of the parish.
What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Neighbourhood Plan must align with Tandridge District Council’s Local Plan and the government’s wider policy of sustainable development. Some new housing will certainly be built in Limpsfield in the future, but having a Neighbourhood Plan will help to ensure that this housing is suitable and meets local needs. It will also help to identify the facilities and services that need to be in place.
Whilst a Neighbourhood Plan may only influence some issues, it is still important to collect residents’ views on law and order, traffic and parking, education and health.
