Residents have an opportunity to shape the future of council services in the Parish Council as a parish-wide survey of local opinion is launched.
In May 2020 the Parish Council adopted its first every corporate plan and action plan, simply entitled ‘Our Corporate Plan’. This was developed using results from the 2019 parish wide survey. As the three-year plan term is coming to an end, the Council are surveying residents again and will use the results to help the council make informed decisions over future services.

The residents’ survey gives people the opportunity to have their say on the services they receive from the Parish Council. Views are being sought from all residents aged 16 and over and the survey will close on December 30th 2022.
Not wishing to miss out on the views of our younger residents, a separate survey for under 16’s has also been developed and made available through our colleagues in the local schools. Fair Oak & Horton Heath Parish Council Community Engagement Survey 2022: Schools (surveymonkey.co.uk)
In speaking on the importance of the survey, Helen Douglas, Chairman of the Council said “The Council and its partners want to know how you feel about your local area and the services you’d like to see the Parish deliver. In the past these surveys have led to real and important changes – residents spoke and as a council we listened. This is again an opportunity for you to have your say, so if you feel strongly that you want to something delivered that’s within our remit, or to generally give feedback about something the council has done – positive or otherwise, then this is your chance. Don’t miss out – complete the survey and have your say”.
The full results of the survey will be known in February 2023 with the Council adopting a new three-year corporate plan & action plan in April 2023.
