A heartfelt thank you to everyone that took part in our four community consultation events held in Goat Lees, Boughton Lees and Sandyhurst Lane in September 2015.

Participants were asked to add their comments to our display boards. You took up the challenge and left us with 932 post-it notes, some covering more than one topic. These were entered into a spreadsheet, allowing us to complete an analysis of your comments.  The bar chart below shows the total number of comments for each topic. Click to enlarge.

You gave us some very thoughtful responses. There seems to be consensus around a number of issues making it possible to identify some emerging themes. Likewise, the sub-categories in the bar charts below have emerged from your comments rather than being imposed by us.

While we want to share this information with you, it represents only a snapshot of the views and opinions of the contributors to the community consultation events which took place in September 2015 (and does not necessarily represent the views of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee or Parish Council).

A survey questionnaire will be sent out to every household in the parishes in March 2016. The results of which will be analysed by an independent consultant.
