Consultees

There is no formal requirement for any public consultation. However, during April to June 2018, the parish council set up a task and finish group to undertake consultation with the local community on proposals to change the name of the parish council. Notices were placed on all the parish notice boards and in the local newsletter for the months of April and May inviting comments by 8th June 2018. Nine responses from members of the community were received, of those eight were in favour of the proposed name change and one was opposed. Of the responses received this equated to 88.8% for the proposed change of name, with 11.15% opposed to it.
