Oak House and the children from Stutton School

May 2019

 

Children from Stutton School visited Oak House to talk with residents about the future of the village. It was a lively morning - some said Stutton is perfectas it is, but everyone agree that it is really hard for some people to get about in the village because the pavements are narrow, or run out, in certain places. 

Everyone agreed, "We must consider the eco-system as we grow, not destroy the delicate balance in this beautiful place".

March 2019

 

The Big Conversation is about everyone in the village having the opportunity to say what they think about how we can make this an even better place to live - and to shape its future. And that means involving the children.

Stutton School will be involved in lots of ways, throughout the process of building a Neighbourhood Plan. Here you can see the results of a fabulous morning of talking and (painting), when we focused on "What should new houses look like", "Where should they be built" and "Is there anything more we can do to look after this beautiful place we live".

See what people said at the Big Tea Party consultation

As people arrived at The Big Tea Party, everyone was given three big 'parcel tags' on which to write their thoughts about the future of the village.  There was also a Rant Wall for frustrations and annoyances.

The tags had questions on them - to act as prompts. People could respond to these or ignore them as they wished. The questions were organised in the three headings suggested by the Neighbourhood Plan process - SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL, ECONOMIC

First of many Newsletters to keep you up to date

A Neighbourhood Plan Newsletter will drop through your door on Sunday 17th February - the first of many to ensure that everyone in the village knows what is going on - and can get involved. The first Newsletter outlines the timetable for the next two years - and in particular the major consultation period (Big Conversation) over the Spring and Summer of 2019.

These are Wordles - they give a particular kind of overview of what people said in each area. We fed in all the words ... the bigger the word on the World, the more often it was used.

22 September 2018

Almost unanimous vote to go ahead with creating a Neighbourhood Plan

There was a great turnout for The Big Tea Party event on Saturday 22 September. The hall looked lovely - decorated with imaginative ways to 'have your say' and pretty tea tables were laden with delicious cakes. There was also a children's area.

Everyone was met at the door and invited to write ideas about the future of Stutton under the three headings provided by the Neighbourhood Planning structure - Environment, Social and Economic. There was also a Rant Wall where villagers could ... have a rant.

After tea, Mark Nowers, Chair of the Big Conversation Working Party spoke about the pros and cons of creating a Neighbourhood Plan =- and about what's involved.

The event finished with a show of hands: 'Do you want Stutton to have a Neighbourhood Plan?' The feeling was overwhelmingly in favour.
