more than two years work the results of the Town Plan survey are now
available and can be accessed via a link on this page.
Wivenhoe Town Plan Group was set up to provide a summary of
residents' view on a range of local issues and incorporate these
into the Local Development Framework (LDF). The LDF is the
planning process set up by the government to replace the Local Plan
and is much more wide ranging in that it not only focuses on housing
and construction planning but includes all the various services that
impact on local quality of life: transport, health, crime, education
Town Plan Group has been run by volunteers with funding from a
number of sources, including the lottery. Wivenhoe Town
Council involvement has been limited to help with seed funding and
free accommodation for meetings.
copies of the questionnaire were delivered to each home and 25% of
these were completed and returned. This very high proportion
means that the survey results do really represent local opinion on
the various issues.
Plan was launched in the William Loveless Hall at a public meeting
on Saturday 25th October 2008.
Hard copies of the Plan will be
sent to all the various service providers. A pdf copy (2.3mb) is
available from this site - click here
The Plan includes an Action
Plan to follow up on the various issues that have been
identified. This means that the work of the Group
continues, so if you would like to help with the Action Plan please
do come to the launch. You can also get involved by contacting
