We have had a request from a research student at the University of Manchester for help with his dissertation on Neighbourhood Planning:

Background
Over the last few years communities have been encouraged to take a more active part in the planning process for their areas through Neighbourhood Planning. My research aims to review the level of continuing participation in the planning process in areas with ‘made’ plans. As a community that was involved in this initiative, I am keen to hear your views.

The Survey
The brief survey will take less than 10 minutes of your time to complete and your opinions will help to help me evaluate the long term impact neighbourhood planning has had and will allow me to ensure that my study is as thorough as possible. You can access the survey through the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/neighbourhoodparticipation

The research will take place over a four week period (ending 06/08/20). All information provided in the survey is recorded anonymously and the results will only be used for the purpose of writing my dissertation.
