The purpose of the Village Plan
The Village Plan process was initiated for the purpose of eliciting ideas and opinions about life in East Stour from as many villagers as possible.
In November 2011 delivery of a Questionnaire was attempted to all 278 occupied properties in the village of East Stour. The purpose of the Questionnaires was to produce a Village Plan Document which reflected the opinions and ideas of the residents of East Stour.
The Village Plan document (found via the link below) summarises the ideas and opinions submitted by residents on the Village Plan Questionnaires.
It is hoped that some of the ideas put forward will result in action by groups of like-minded residents willing to form committees and self-help groups and that more residents will become involved in village events.
