June is Survey Month
Throughout June 2014 we’ll be running a number of surveys to get views of Portland residents to help develop the Portland Plan.
The intention of the Neighbourhood Plan is to involve the community in shaping the future of the Island. The Island is at a cross roads and many decisions that are made over the next year will have a substantial influence over our future and it is important that you are involved.
Since the early part of this year a number of the Working Group members have been reviewing policies and strategies which impact upon the Island and bringing these together in one document. This evidence base is available as a pdf in our library section, together with other information which charts the progress to date and the project plan for the future.
Bringing this information together has revealed a number of interesting issues and has shown how much the Local Plan and the information upon which it was prepared has changed since it was consulted on in the summer of 2012. Already group members are discussing the different ways the Island could develop and we need to roll this debate out so that everyone is aware of the options and can make an informed contribution.
June is therefore survey month, as such, it is your month. During June we will be seeking your comments and views through a series of surveys. Watch out for the timetables of our consultation activities, which will be displayed throughout the Island and sign up to our mailing list to keep up-to-date with the surveys – remember we need your input.
