31 FIRST CONSULTATION QUESTIONNAIRE
Members had met informally on 18 February 2019 to design the first consultation questionnaire to be issued to residents.
A copy of the draft questionnaire had been issued to all members by e-mail.
There was an issue in respect of the shield which had been used as the logo for the questionnaire and whether permission should have been sought from the Cholmondeley Estate. Members agreed that, on balance, although specific permission had not been sought, this had been issued to all members of the Steering Group and James Hall, as the Estate representative, would have made comment if this was not acceptable.
Minor amendments to the document were made, following which it was –
RESOLVED: (a) That the revised questionnaire be issued at the earliest opportunity;
(b) That 300 copies be printed by Johnsons the Printers, Nantwich;
(c) That members of the Steering Group hand-deliver the questionnaires, and, if possible, allow residents to complete them, ‘while they wait’;
(d) That the 28 April 2019 be agreed as the deadline date for responses; and
(e) That the questionnaire be forwarded to Lucy Hughes of Cheshire Community Action.
32 INFORMAL MEETING OF MEMBERS
It was agreed that Members meet informally on 29 April 2019 to consider the responses to the questionnaire and prepare for the next formal meeting.
33 PROJECT PLAN
A copy of the Project Plan prepared by Lucy Hughes, was received. This was out-of-date but had been submitted to remind members of the various stages in the process.
