Dean provided a draft questionnaire that he had put together.
1. Advice from Ian Mackay:
Questionnaire – quoted the example of Seacroft, focusing on asking residents what they like, what they would like to change, and requesting involvement.
Vision statement – advised that we should have enough feedback to support the vision statement.
Use evidence of our activities – engagement with residents (events /doordrops etc), meetings (minutes/agendas) – pull together an audit trail of what we have done so far.
AP – Val to draft audit trail of NP Committee’s activities.
AP – Keith to consult with businesses (Bowcliffe / Bramham Park / Garage) about how they can be involved.
Questionnaire should be ‘topped & tailed’ – also include an intro and summary – also add a section for ‘anything else to add?’
Produce a covering letter – manage expectations regarding neighbourhood plan.
AP – Dean to revise draft questionnaire
Consider how to reach younger people.
AP – Keith to consider young persons’ champion (talk to Fiona Henderson for ideas).
Site allocations – a draft site allocations plan is expected in the Autumn
