Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey

Your Broadclyst Parish Neighbourhood Plan Community Survey is now live at:




What is it?
Neighbourhood Planning was introduced in 2012 to enable communities to have a greater say in local development. Broadclyst’s Neighbourhood Plan will contain planning policies which, when completed, will sit alongside East Devon District Council’s Local Plan - with the same legal weight - and will be used to inform planning decisions within the parish. It will also be referred to by the Local Planning Authority when deciding local planning applications.


Who can fill it in?
All residents of Broadclyst Parish are encouraged to complete the survey, which focuses on the future of the Parish, and although it will exclude the strategic developments of Hillside Gardens (Old Park Farm Phase 1), Pinn Court, Tithebarn Green, and Redhayes, your views are important to us and we still want to hear from you.  


What happens to my feedback?
The results will be used to inform the Broadclyst Neighbourhood Plan which will be a planning document to guide future development of the parish over coming years.  The questions reflect areas that have been identified as being important in the future development of the parish.


I’m under 18; can I take part?
We are keen to encourage the younger people of the parish to get involved and trust that parents/carers will judge the appropriateness of the survey for their young people and will support them to make informed choices in response to the questions. This will ensure that we have a representative sample of all residents.


How do I do the survey?
Many of you will have received a copy of the survey through your letter box however it is less costly and more accurate to analyse electronic responses and so encourage you to complete the survey online via this linkhttp://surveymonkey.com/s/broadclystNP


But I don’t have internet…
If you are unable to complete the survey online and do not already have a paper copy you can request one from Angie Hurren, Clerk, on tel. 01392 360269.  If you complete a paper copy of the survey you can then either scan it and e-mail it to clerk@broadclyst.org or drop it off at: 19 New Buildings, The Post Office/Shop, The New Inn or at the village Fun Day on June 25th. You can also post the completed survey to Devon Communities Together, First Floor, 3&4 Cranmere Court, Lustleigh Close, Matford Business Park, Exeter, Devon EX2 8PW.


Completing the survey
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey together with all those living in your property.  Each person should use the same column and letter throughout the survey ie ‘Person A' in question 2, should continue to be ‘Person A’ throughout. If your household has more than 5 residents please contact us for an additional form. Some questions are more general and can be answered by writing in the box provided. If there is a difference of opinion between household members please make it clear, with the appropriate letter, which person has made which comment.  

Why do you need my postcode if it’s anonymous?
The survey is completely anonymous. We only ask for your postcode and age to help us understand any localised or age related issues and to ensure we have a representative sample of residents. 


Who analyses the results?
Devon Communities Together is supporting the Broadclyst Neighbourhood Plan steering group with this survey and will be analysing the responses to ensure that this is done independently.


Please ensure your survey is completed and submitted by 17 July 2016 as responses after this date will not be included.


Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete the survey.
