Duffield Action Plan 2020

Draft Village Action Plan published - read the consultation and have your say in NEW online survey

Every five years the Parish Council prepares a Village Action Plan (VAP). It defines what facilities and other changes residents would like to see in future. It sets the direction for the village and gives everyone the opportunity to comment and provide their input. The last plan (which can be found at the bottom of this page) was published in 2015 and covered the period 2015 to 2020.

Early in 2020, the Parish Council started the process of preparing a new plan. Initial consultations were held with residents but the process was interrupted by the pandemic, which made it impossible to have face to face consultations and diverted effort into more urgent actions.

A draft Village Action Plan has now been prepared based on those early consultations, and our intent is to refine the plan through an on-line review process.

The Parish Council is therefore now inviting feedback on the themes and content of the draft plan and would like to know in more detail how we develop these themes and move forward into the next 5 years.

If you want something to be improved in the village, this is an opportunity to say so.

All residents are urged to complete the survey, since the results will be much more persuasive if a high percentage of the village has completed the survey. We will close the survey at the end of March.

It should only take around 10 minutes to complete. To read the draft Plan/consultation document and to find the link to complete the online survey, please see the document below. Or you can go directly to the online survey here.

Results of consultation carried out in 2020

A consultation event was held at the Weston Centre on the 1st February 2020 and villagers were invited to drop in, take a look at the suggested priorities and successes over recent years and give their views on what future improvements can be made. Additionally, an online survey was carried out in Spring 2020.

A summary document of this consultation, giving residents' concerns and suggestions, and some solutions and actions to be added to the Action Plan, can be found below.
