When the council started this review we wanted to find out what people thought of the ideas in the petition. We ran an initial phase of consultation in the autumn of 2018. Although most people told us that they do not support the creation of a parish, there was stronger support for the idea from people living in the area. Some people said that they wanted more information before they made up their minds.
Even if you responded to the first phase of consultation, we would still like to hear from you. You may want to reconsider or reaffirm your views after reviewing the information we have provided here. The council is committed to a two stage consultation. We said we would provide more information at the second stage about the role and powers of a parish council. We also want your views on the area and the naming of a parish if one were to be created.
