ROGATE and Rake villagers are about to embark on the detailed work of producing a neighbourhood plan after a good response to their questionnaire asking for ideas about the future of the parish.
The steering committee received some 200 replies from the 350 homes in the parish.
Stephen Taylor, a member of the committee, said: “Based on the national average for such returns, in the region of ten to 15 per cent, we have done well.
“However, a very helpful collective return from the youth club has given us some valuable views from the younger and future generation of possible householders.”
Comments will help the steering committee draft a plan. Its first meeting will be held on April 11.
