Booklet details responses to Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire

An eight-page booklet detailing the results of the questionnaire consultation which feeds in to the North Weald Bassett Neighbourhood Plan is to be delivered to every household in the Parish.

Some 1,260 people responded to the questionnaire detailing what they like and dislike about the village, and setting out what they would like to see for the future of the Parish.

Fifty-seven per cent of respondents listed traffic speed as the biggest problem for residents with travel to, and parking at, Epping Station highlighted by 54 per cent of respondents.

Some 49 per cent highlighted congested roads.

With the prospect of new development in the area, 92 per cent see an increase in traffic as their biggest worry, and 81 per cent citing an increase in crime and anti-social behaviour.

Adriana Jones, a parish council officer supporting the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, said:

"Last summer many of our residents took the time to complete the Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire that was posted through their doors. 

"Further to a number of high level consultations the group undertook, this was the first major consultation as part of the Neighbourhood Plan process giving residents an opportunity to say how they feel about the area, and identify what was important to them both now and in the future."

Three public events were held last December, one in each of the villages within the Parish, to feedback the results of the questionnaire to residents.

The booklet has been produced containing a summary of the consultation findings, a copy of which will be delivered to each home in the Parish towards the end of February. 

A copy of the booklet is also available online at https://northwealdbassettplan.org/

Mrs Jones added: “The Steering Group promised to let residents know the results of the questionnaire and the booklet provides this. 

"The feedback from the questionnaires will form part of the evidence based that will be used to create a vision, objectives, and draft policies for a Neighbourhood Plan for North Weald Bassett."

A further consultation on draft visions, objectives and policy themes is expected to take place during the summer.
