In a few week’s time a questionnaire will be dropping through your letterbox seeking your views on current issues in the Hilton, Marston-on-Dove, and Hoon area, as well as capturing what you would like to see for the future
There is an on-line version which can be accessed through this website, and will also be shared through Facebook ( our FB page, Spotted:Hilton, plus other local pages). This is the preferred method of input.
This is in support of the Hilton Area Neighbourhood Development Plan which is a project run by volunteer residents and sponsored by the Hilton Parish Council. The project was formally launched in January 2018 at a public meeting at the Hilton Primary School.
The Plan looks at all aspects of the Area – Housing, Schools, Transport and Traffic, Environment, Shops and amenities, Leisure and Business. We will use the responses to the questionnaire to shape planning policies which, when finally agreed, will have legal significance in deciding future developments. Some of the analysis will be forwarded to the Parish, District and County Councils to help influence more shorter term improvements.
We would like to get a very high return rate for the questionnaire.
Paper versions will be sent to every household and copies can be taken if everyone in the house wishes to fill it in. We will be positioning “drop-boxes” throughout the village to make return as easy as possible – details of the locations will be on the questionnaire.
Also, to encourage everyone to participate there are 3 cash prizes of £100, £50 and £50 which will be picked at random on 31st July 2018.
We will continue to consult with all residents throughout the life of theproject to ensure that Your Voice has been properly heard within the Plan.
We look forward to reading your views.
