Parish Survey- the results are in!

Home » Latest News » Survey- the Results are in!

The Parish Survey is now closed and the Parish Council is grateful to the 132 people who took the time to consider the two questions. The number of responses represents approximately 10% of all households and roughly 5% of the population of Curry Rivel. However many people provided more than one comment which is why the figures in the tables below add up to more than 200 in both cases

A breakdown of the survey is available as a pdf file and can be downloaded by clicking on the icon below.

A summary of the responses to the two questions is shown below. It is good to see that people cite the facilities that the Village offers as among the key attractions of the village along with our rural setting, the friendly people, the many local events and groups, the easy access to the countryside and the supportive and community spirit that exists here.

In terms of concerns and improvements, it is no surprise that car parking, traffic flow, building development and litter/dog fouling are high on the list. Improving the facilities for our youngsters is an area that the Council is currently considering and there will be updates on this in due course. For now, the Parish Council is aware of the main concerns raised and is considering how best to tackle these.
