On 22nd July a public meeting Participate in
Wickham's Future was held to update residents on
work carried out to date and to present the first consultation draft of the Parish Plan
and Village Design Statement. The event was advertised
in the summer Parish Magazine which is delivered to all
households, personal invitations were also sent by mail
and email to all those who gave contact details asking
for updates on the survey questionnaires.
About 80 people attended the event where a proposal for an extension to the north of the village was displayed together with plans for two sites for affordable houses, 36 in total, either side of Mill Lane. The proposed new doctors' surgery was also displayed and representatives from all these interests were available to answer questions
The Market Town Health Check process has been used to gather evidence for the revised Plan and to shape the Parish Council's adopted strategies
During the summer of 2009 a questionnaire was delivered to every household in the Parish asking for opinions on various local issues. The results are below.
Using data and evidence gathered to date the Parish Council has adopted a Strategy for 2009/10 which will be extended and added to in due course.
The response to the summer questionnaires showed a limited response from those aged 25-45, to address this a further survey was distributed
to all families at Wickham Primary School. Only two responses were received which is considered unsatisfactory. A grant
was applied for to carry out some professional on street
surveys to target this age group and further surveys
carried out during the spring of 2010.
In February 2010 all local organisations were invited to put forward their views on the strengths and weaknesses of the community and to outline any areas where further help was needed. Link to copy of consultation. Responses were disappointing but organisations are being kept up to date with progress via email.
In March 2010 local traders were asked for their views on the local economy and any local issues that are hindering the development of their businesses. Response was again disappointing but perhaps indicate there are no great concerns. Traders are being kept up to date with progress via email.
During 2010 two further consultation projects will be taking place: Voice 4 Youth targeting all young people; a report and action plan will be produced for the Parish Plan as part of this work. A local youth forum is an anticipated outcome of the process. This work will begin with an activities event at Wickham Centre 18th March 6-10pm. This will be carried out in partnership with Wickham Community Association and Wickham Parish Council lead by Kat Lemon.
A second piece of work will target older people to determine the current levels of care available, deficiencies and proposed action plans for the future. This is being carried out by Wickham Community Association in partnership with other associations in the Bishops Waltham area.
