Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan – First Household Questionnaire
We had a great response to the first Neighbourhood Plan survey and received 712 questionnaires which were completed by over 1100 local people.

Neighbourhood Plan Survey of Business & Special Interest Groups
This survey ran from 19th September until 31st October and invited comment and opinion from businesses and other local organisations and associations about the current social, commercial and economic environment.

Young People Survey
Students from local primary and secondary schools were invited to share their views.

News – 2nd Household Survey –  Report is Now Available to View
The second and final household consultation closed in June 2017 and the response was incredible. Over 1800 households completed the online or paper survey to tell us their views about future development and how this impacts on the natural and human-made environment, our housing and the community who live in this beautiful valley.

Thank you to everyone who responded – we really appreciate the time and effort you gave to tell us your views which will help ensure that the Neighbourhood Plan truly reflects the wishes of the community.

Port Royal Regeneration – Scoping Study
A concept idea for the Port Royal area in Sidmouth has been developed by consultants as part of a scoping study to assess the feasibility of redevelopment of the area. The study has been commissioned by Sidmouth Town and East Devon District Councils, who are the major landowners of the site, and is the first step in exploring options for the area. They have undertaken a public consultation on the concept ideas and the results will be made available to the public in September.

While the Sid Valley Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group is not associated with any group or campaign concerning any other issue that affects the Sid Valley, and our neutrality is governed by our objective to make a Neighbourhood Plan which is evidence based through robust public consultation, we think it is important that the views and opinions about Port Royal from the 1863 households who completed the Second Household survey should be fed into the public consultation. We have therefore fast-tracked the analysis on the Port Royal section of the survey and this has now been was provided to the consultants and both councils.
