Following the massive response to the All in One Survey, Richmond Council is set to continue as a leader in localism and involving residents in decisions on their localities.
In the next phase of the All In One programme it will hold nine village planning events to cover 14 villages across the borough. The events will take place between May and July.
Last autumn the Council sent a questionnaire to every home in the borough to ask residents about local services and find out the issues that mattered most and in particular which ones needed improving.
Over 13,500 people – 17 per cent of borough households - responded giving the Council a better picture than ever before of what local people wanted for their areas. The next step is to have a series of planning events across the borough in the heart of the areas that have been chosen by residents themselves in response to the call to define their localities the ‘All in One’ survey. These areas are the villages that people most identify with in Richmond upon Thames.
The meetings will begin on 14 May and run through to 2 July. Each one will take place on a Saturday. They will open at 10am and close at 5pm.
