UPDATE 23rd November 2023 – Fourth Version of the Draft Parish Priority Statement

Selborne Parish Council would like to thank all those residents who have submitted responses to the Parish Priority Statement Survey

More than 90 responses were received – almost 10% based on the total number of  households in the Parish.  This is a great level of feedback for a survey  – so thank you for your input on this.

Several Parish Councillors formed a Working Group (Cllrs Ashcroft, Bennett, Bridger, Earney, Heaselgrave and Megeney) to review the surveys and propose a DRAFT Parish Priority Statement.  Thankyou to these and all other Councillors for the significant amount of work done so far.  The DRAFT was reviewed in detail and approved to go forward for a second stage of public consultation at the Council meeting on Wednesday 18th October.
