The Isle of Wedmore has a Parish Plan

Here is an extract from the government White Paper on the subject:

"People in rural communities care strongly about the places where they live, about the services and activities that hold the community together, the local landscape and how it should evolve in the future. Every village has its own priorities, local strengths and features which are special and unique.

We recognise that diversity and local pride. We want to give rural communities a bigger say in managing their affairs. To achieve this we will help all rural communities develop Parish Plans to indicate how they would like their village to develop, to identify key facilities and services, to set out the problems that need to be tackled and demonstrate how its distinctive character and features can be preserved."

It seems they really mean it! They provided funding, supplemented by a small grant from Wedmore Parish Council, to run the survey and produce the Plan. The First School and Adult Surveys were completed by the end of 2002. The findings have been analysed and presented to the community at an exhibition held in Wedmore Village Hall on Saturday 14th June 2003.

Apart from the data processing element of the Survey, all work was carried out on behalf of the community by local volunteers.
