Please complete the “Next Step” Survey

This survey covers the villages of Hilton, Marston-on-Dove and Hoon. Anyone who lives in the 3 villages can complete this survey – even if you didn’t complete the one last summer.

The deadline for submissions is 17th March 2019.

The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete.

All members of the household can complete a survey, please make multiple submissions.


In June/July 2018, 928 people completed our first survey which provided us with a lot of data on your views and preferences across a range of subjects. Some of that information has already been used successfully in identifying and agreeing Local Green Spaces and informing discussion on local traffic issues.

Since the summer we have drafted planning policies based on “What You Said”. They are listed in this document giving you an option to agree or disagree and comment.

More details on how we arrived at the policies can be found by clicking the photo, below, or by visiting the display at the Hilton Village Hall.


When finally agreed, these policies will form the Neighbourhood Development Plan which will sit alongside planning policies within South Derbyshire District Council. Combined, these will influence the development of our Neighbourhood Area for the next 15 years.

After the surveys have been completed, the results will be analysed. Further community consultations will take place and a draft Plan produced by the middle of the year.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan project is run by volunteer residents. The Plan looks at Housing, Education, Transport and Traffic, Environment, Shops and Amenities, Leisure and Business.

Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you,

The Neighbourhood Development Plan Steering Group.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan is sponsored by the Hilton Parish Council.
