Upper Eden Community Plan Refresh 2018

Closed 5 Apr 2018

Opened 5 Mar 2018


Please share your views, concerns and aspirations for the future of Upper Eden, and help influence change in your local community.

Information gathered from this consultation will be used to create a refreshed community plan, with identified actions that will help to meet the needs of the people who live and work here.

What is a Community Plan?

A community plan gives everyone a chance to say what they think about social, economic and environmental issues affecting their community and how they`d like to see the area improved.

The first Upper Eden Community Plan brought together the views and priorities of residents and businesses in 2008 and set an action plan for projects and initiatives to achieve the aspirations of the local community.

What did the 2008 Upper Eden Community Plan achieve?

A visitors centre, neighbourhood plan, renewable energy schemes, community website, annual events and festivals, housing needs survey, a new play area, local walks, and new footpaths to name but a few.

How to complete the questionnaire:

The questionnaire is organised into four main areas which relate to the themes within the Upper Eden Community Plan: Environment, Economy, Social and Community, Transport and Accessibility.

Each theme has a range of questions to help understand more about the Upper Eden community and hear directly from people in the area about what is important to them, changes that need to be made and new opportunities for the future.

How long does is take to complete?

The questionnaire has been kept short and should only take you 25-30 minutes.
