The following is a summary of the general findings:

  • 30 responses in total have been received to date - this represents 14% of the potential responses from forms delivered in the Parish
  • There were high approval ratings for Fire, Police and Ambulance services as well as for the Parish Council itself - thank you!
  • Our refuse and recycle collection services were also well appreciated
  • Street lighting, roadside cleaning and grass verge maintenance rate lower on the approval scale.
  • There was general agreement that new housing developments, particularly for affordable and sheltered housing, were acceptable.
  • Local bus services were not widely used, and approval rating for them was mixed.
  • Speeding was seen as a problem in areas such as Adbaston, Bishops Offley and Knighton.
  • Respondents felt that our roads needed more care and attention, particularly during bad weather.
  • There was widespread interest in Neighbourhood Watch which many people had not been involved in before.
  • Litter was seen as a problem in a few localised areas, but noise, dog fouling, fly tipping and overgrown hedgerows were only a small problem.
  • The Parish Church, Jubilee Room and Millennium Green were valued by many of the respondents.
  • The Jubilee Group, Churchyard maintenance and this newsletter were all rated highly (the council contributes to all of these activities).
  • People's preferences were to be kept in touch through the newsletter and there appeared to be widespread support for an email newsletter.

The Parish Council would like to extend its thanks to everyone who took part. Much thought went into the responses and a full analysis of the results and the text answers will be discussed at the next Council Meeting on Monday 30 April, 2012.
