The Ashurst & Colbury Parish Questionnaire 2018
What’s all this about then?
You may have already received a copy of the 2018 Parish Questionnaire. If not, look out for one dropping through your letter box in the next few days. The questionnaire has been put together by a group of local residents and parish councillors with the aim of finding out what people think about living in the village.
Why should I fill it in?
The information from the questionnaire will be used to develop a Parish plan that reflects the issues raised by the local community. The more people who complete it the better the information will be to produce the plan.
The data will also help in any future bids for funding or other support to help deal with local issues.
How can I give you my views?
You can complete the paper copy of the questionnaire or, better still, fill it in on line by clicking on this link. On line responses make the task of analysing the results a whole lot easier.
How long will it take me to fill in the form?
People work at different speeds but we reckon it shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire.
Who should complete the questionnaire?
Any local resident can complete the survey. We hope everyone in your household will fill out a survey form. If you need more paper copies you can pick them up at either the Post Office or the Welcome Store (Coop). Or you can complete the survey on line click here.
What do I do with my completed form?
If you have a completed paper copy please take it to the Post Office or the Welcome Store (Coop) where you will find a box to drop it into. If you complete the form on line it will automatically be saved.
What’s the deadline for me to fill in the survey?
We’d like you to let us have your completed survey forms before Sunday 25th February 2018.
Will my answers be treated confidentially?
Yes of course! We will not disclose the information to any third parties and, although we’d appreciate you giving us your name and address etc, you don’t have to if you don’t want to. If you give us those details it will help us to check that we have views from as wide a range of people and locations as possible.
I’ve got some questions about all this – how can I get answers?
If you have any queries about the questionnaire, would like help getting more forms, or help handing completed ones back then please ring Emma Lacey (Chair of the Parish Council) on 023 8029 3875.
What happens next?
After the survey closes we will analyse all the data and publish the headline details as soon as we can. This will be in the parish magazine and on the Parish Council web site. We will keep you posted about any developments or changes to timing.
Thank you in advance for helping build a better picture of what’s needed to make our village an even better place to live!
