The Future of Tiptree is in Your Hands
A very big thank you to everyone who completed the questionnaire, as well as all the individuals and businesses that supported us with the promotion.
We anticipated that only about 6% of the questionnaires would be completed and returned to us, but are delighted to report that over 1200 responses have been recieved, approximately 750 of them in the paper version and over 450 online responses. This means that over 28% of the village participated
We have now become victims of our own success, having had a fantastic response to the questionnaire which was sent out to all residents and businesses in Tiptree
We now need volunteers to help us process the suggestions and comments ready to be analysed, so that the information can be evaluated prior to preparing policies to be put forward in a draft plan, so that Colchester Borough Council will know what the residents of our village want for their village in the future.
We are now looking for additional people who have some time to spare, to either dictate or input the data onto a website (if you have your own laptop/tablet this will help speed up the process). We are meeting at the Tiptree Community Centre on the 4th, 11th, 18th January 2017 followed by every Wednesday in February at the Community Centre from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. It would be very much appreciated if you are able to assist with this task. Please email NPtiptree@btconnect.com or telephone the Parish Council Office 01621 817030 if you think that you can possibly help us.
If you have any comments please do not hesitate to write to us or attend one of our Working Party Meetings which are normally the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. Meetings suspended until further notice due to the above task.
Please listen to what our Chairman Cllr Steve Bays had to say about the questionnaire HERE
