The Parish Council have set up a working group to assit in creating a Neighbourhood Plan for Canewdon. The group meets on a monthly basis and has representatives from:
Canewdon Parish Council
Canewdon Community Association
Canewdon Educational Trust
Canewdon Womens Institute
Canewdon Horticultural Society
Public meetings are held regularly in the Village Hall to engage with the local community in order to help shape the plan.

Following on from the various events and meetings during the last 18 months, a residents questionnaire has now been designed and printed. The questionnaire will ask for views and comments on a number of issues and will provide very important evidence in the production of the Neighbourhood Plan.
A questionnaire will be hand delivered to every household in the parish, during the next few weeks, by our Communication Champions, who will also arrange to call back to collect the completed questionnaires.
The questionnaire will not ask for your name or address, but will ask for your postcode and age groups. This will help to demonstrate that the views of a cross section of the population have been achieved.
The information obtained from the questionnaires will be used towards the preparation of a draft plan that will reflect the consensus views of the parish.
A business survey will also be carried out later this year and there is a separate Housing Needs Survey planned for late Spring/early Summer, which will be a more in-depth look at the existing and future housing needs of the community.
We ask that you all please take some time to complete the questionnaires and ensure that they are ready for collection on the specified dates. This is a very important part of the Neighbourhood Plan process and is your opportunity to have your say, in writing, about the future of the parish.
Thank you for your support!
