A COMMUNITY group is asking for more responses to a survey - as it prepares to create a plan for the future of its area.

The Westham Community Group has launched its new Action Plan Survey which asks residents what they like about the area, what they don’t like and how they would like to see Westham improved.

The closing date for responses is Sunday December 12 and the group will be presenting the findings at a community meeting in the new year.

Councillor Gill Taylor, Chair of Westham Community Group, said: "It shouldn’t take too long to do and we would really appreciate responses.

"These responses are so vital and will give us a foundation to make plans for Westham based on what our local residents say they would like to see and what they want.

"We ask residents to fill them in but are also conscious that our younger residents are rarely asked for their opinions; for this reason we have a young persons’ survey for under 18 year olds.

"This will only take few minutes for them to fill in so if you have young people in your household please encourage them to fill it in as well."
