MANEA residents have just over a week left to have their say on the future of the village.
The questionnaire distributed by Manea Action Plan Group on behalf of the parish council is proving quite a talking point in the village and the Drop Boxes are filling up fast.
Bright yellow banners, reminding residents of the September 8 deadline, are positioned on the three main roads leading into the village and group leaders within the community have been busy spreading the word.
But some people still haven’t got round to either completing the questionnaire or submitted to one of the four drop off points.
Dianne Rowe, Communications Secretary for action plan group said: “This is an opportunity, which only comes around every 10 years, for all Manea residents to have their say, so we’re hoping that everyone will take the time to complete the questionnaire and return it to a Drop Box.
“The boxes can be found in Londis, The Rose and Crown, Rumours Café and the doctor’s surgery, plus there will be a helpdesk in the Royal British Legion on the morning of Saturday September 8 if anyone needs a hand or has a query.”
Diane continued: “Response so far has been good but we would like it to be great as the opinions of individuals are vital to make the final Action Plan worthwhile. If you run a business in Manea, please remember to complete the Business Questionnaire as well. Again, this could be very instrumental in influencing any future planning decisions.”
The survey has a series of sub-sections asking people’s views on everything from education to public transport and will be used by the parish council to help draw up a plan for the future development of Manea.
