North Baddesley Parish Council
*Update on the North Baddesley Parish Plan.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete the North Baddesley Parish Plan survey, we have received over 600 responses, which is great. That figure doesn’t include all the work we’ve carried out with children from the local schools and Scouts. The next few months will be taken up collating all the results and writing a draft plan, thank you to those who said they would like to be involved or hear more about it, we may well be in touch again soon to ask for people to form focus groups or give us more views on specific areas i.e. traffic, play facilities etc. to help us come up with an action plan.
We are just adding the final surveys onto the system, once complete we will be drawing the prize winner for the £40 voucher for a local restaurant.

North Baddesley Parish Council is currently working towards developing a Parish Plan and would be interested to hear residents' views. Parish Plans are not planning documents are not intended to be a response to planning issues. They are about what is important in your local community and cover the whole spectrum of social, economic and environmental issues. Issues which involve planning policy may or may not come up as part of the Parish Planning process, but more importantly they are about issues that are important to your community. Please give us your views by completing a survey which can be found via the attached link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NBadPP
