Batheaston Neighbourhood Plan

(24th Oct 2014 update) 

Have Your Say - Data from the THINK TANK now available. 

Since 30th Sept, the data has been gathered together, handwritten forms typed up and all the data reviewed (with some comments being moderated) and the resulting data has now been made available for residents to view.

All entries contain a reference number that is traceable back to the original forms, which are being held by our Parish Clerk.

Some high level numbers are, that we had 266 questionnaires returned, resulting in 858 'Like' comments, 725 'Dislike' comments and 674 Suggestions.

For the project to succeed as a "Community Project", then it will be necessary that there is a lot of involvement by residents and from the questionnaires, we have over 50 contributors who have left their contact details and we hope they will be involved in the next steps of the project. It's not too late to get involved and you can make contact by emailing

The Process

The whole process, being managed through the Neighbourhood Plan Committee, could take 18 months to complete, will need many volunteers from within the community and briefly will include

More details will be provided over the coming weeks so please keep an eye on this page.
