Since 2017 the following people have contributed to our communications group: John Adams, Jane Moss, Beccy Brougham-Childs, Rob Follett, Pat Willmore, Servane Trefusis, and Melanie Franks. John Adams and Jane Moss are the joint leads.
We have a number of responsibilities – everything from running this website and our social media, to helping publicise and run events – but our major task is finding out what you think and using your opinions to guide the making of the plan. This plan must reflect what you want.
To achieve this, our aim has been to get in contact with as many people living or working in the Parish of Mylor and Flushing as possible.
We have used a number of methods to hear your views starting with the postcard surveys in late 2017, various exhibitions and presentations in both Flushing and Mylor Bridge, the full parish survey in spring 2018, more exhibitions, the housing needs survey in summer 2018, more exhibitions, an affordable housing sites preference survey in May 2019 and more exhibitions as part of events in the community year. We keep the Parish updated with monthly news in the The Magazine and posters in shop windows and on display sites around the Parish.
We have had a very good response rate to the surveys – thank you – and draft Plan reflects the community’s opinions and wishes. We have recently completed the Regulation 14 Statutory consultation in the full draft plan. This ran from 13 July to 11 September and 89% of respondents to the voluntary poll that accompanied it gave approval to the Plan in its current form.
