LOCAL HOUSING NEEDS SURVEY 2017 - Distribution commenced Saturday 30th September 2017. 

The Parish Council commissioned Community Action Suffolk to develop a Local Housing Needs Survey. A paper copy of the survey has been delivered to every household in the Parish of Great Barton. The survey can be completed on-line or the paper version can be completed and posted direct to Community Action Suffolk in the freepost envelope. Alternatively the distributors will collect together with the Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire. 

Housing Needs Survey


The Working group has put together a  Communication and Engagement plan for the development of the Neighbourhood Plan. This sets out the target audience, the methods of communication and responsibilities.

Neighbourhood Plan Working Group meetings are held monthly (usually in the Community Room of Great Barton Village Hall).

Updates on progress are provided in the Parish Council quarterly Newsletter.


A Drop-in session was held on Saturday 21 January 2017 over 150 people attended the event including the local MP.
