  1. A meeting was held with Hilton School (Ms Katie Jones) to arrange for the children to join in with the Steering Group survey, May 23 was the agreed date. After lunch the children will have the opportunity to have a referendum on the outcome of their survey.

It was suggested that  similar exercise is held with the Youth Group (Sandra) in mid June/early July.

  1. The Grant Review/Budget Update was submitted by Charles Cuddington on Monday 30 April 2018. He has since had a call from Technical Support and a “Screening call” which has resulted in a recommendation for us to receive Technical Support.  They also suggested that it would be advisable to do a site assessment for pockets of land after the results of the survey and the Housing Assessment Needs have been completed. There is a meeting proposed for 22 May with the Planning Policy people of SDDC where this will be raised.
  2. Working Groups Feedback – All questions/topics have been incorporated into the Questionnaire.
  3. SDDC consulted on the green spaces as part of Local Plan Part Two, this bit of the plan was then paused while the rest of it went through – partly due to the fact they had received quite a lot of suggestions for the spaces and they didn’t want this bit of plan to delay the rest. So SDDC still have this evidence and are going through it again now.
  4. Leaflet Drop in process, incorporated into Hilton Directory.
  5. Questionnaire to be in print by 24 May and distributed by 18 June.
  6. Deliveries currently envisaged by Royal Mail, but Scout group to be investigated.
