Questionnaire sent to Chipping Sodbury householders asking what improvements should be made in the town
HOUSEHOLDERS in Chipping Sodbury are due to be sent questionnaires asking what changes they would like to see in their town.
Every home in the Sodbury parish, which includes Old Sodbury and Little Sodbury, will be sent the survey which aims to find out what improvements are needed.
The questionnaire will be sent out in early February and is being run by a committee looking to create a Sodbury Parish Plan, a planning blueprint for the future of the town.
Secretary Pauline Wilson said: “The questionnaire is being organised by the parish plan steering group which is composed of volunteers who are all residents or run a business in Sodbury parish.
“The returned questionnaires will be analysed and the results used to formulate an action plan for the parish.”
The group has held some preliminary consultations where suggestions for improvements included a stall at the bi-monthly farmers’ market where resident gardeners can bring crops they have in excess, an activity centre offering rock climbing, canoeing and bungee jumping being opened in the former Barnhill Quarry and part-pedestrianising the High Street and Broad Street to create a piazza-style environment.
To encourage as many people to reply to the survey as possible, the group is offering three cash prizes of £50, £30 and £20. Businesses are also being asked for their thoughts on the town’s amenities and facilities.
