Newent Neighbourhood Plan Business and Employment Survey

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. It provides a powerful set of tools for local people to plan for the types of development to meet their community’s needs and has statutory weight when planning applications are considered. The steering committee is made up of a cross-section of volunteers (local residents and businessmen) and refers back to Newent Town Council as its responsible body.

The Neighbourhood Plan needs to reflect the views of business and employment in the Parish in order to provide evidence for the Plan, and the Steering Group would like to hear the views of the business community to be able to include them in the Plan.

If you run a business large or small in the parish, if you employ people or are a sold-trader, if you are a branch of a national or international company or work alone, we want to hear from you, whatever line of business you are in.

The term “business” is very broad and also includes community organisations such as the Library and health centre, charity shops and the leisure centres.

Please let us know your views and help us to help shape the future of Newent for the benefit of Newent. It can take as little as 2 minutes to complete!
