As a listed Community Facility in the Much Marcle Neighbourhood Plan (see over for relevant section), there is a stated requirement to consider the loss of this local provision, and, following a public meeting at the end of February, a Community Steering Group has been established to explore the issue.
The Group needs to determine, in the first instance, whether an alternative shop and/or post office facility would be supported and should therefore be considered. In order to do this, information needs to be gathered about the needs and expectations of the wider community, and people's views sought for consideration.
Please fill in this questionnaire for your household - your input is important!.
PLEASE RETURN IT BY TUESDAY 14TH MAY, LATEST - THANK YOU.
