Community Led Plan 2022

Your browser does not support javascript.

Walton Parish Council would like to update and develop our Community Led Plan for the future of the whole parish over the next 10 years. To achieve this, we need to gather the ideas and views of everyone living in Walton Parish. This survey is intended to gather this information. Having this information is essential for developing a plan that meets the future needs of the whole community.

If possible, everyone, of whatever age, in the parish is encouraged to add their comments to this survey. All information gathered will be treated in confidence. You do not need to answer all the questions.

If you prefer to make your views known verbally there will be opportunities to do so. These opportunities will be advertised on the Parish website and Facebook page and on noticeboards within the Parish.

If you prefer, you can download a pdf file to print and complete by hand.
Completed forms can be left in the box at the Village Hall or can be posted to the Clerk at
Hillcrest, Cannon Field, Roadhead, Carlisle CA6 6NB.
Please ensure all returns are received by Sunday 5 June 2022.

Each of the answer boxes in this online form has a limit of 1200 characters - about 200 words.
