					                           OUR VILLAGE – THE FUTURE
                                   Sellindge and District Residents Association Survey
Following discussions with Shepway District Council Planning Department regarding the Local
Development Framework, we are carrying out a survey to find out the views of local people in and
around the Sellindge area. The area will include Sellindge, Lympne, Stanford, Westenhanger,
Newingreen and all neighbouring Parishes. We intend to use the findings from this survey to
influence future planning decisions. Keep updated via our website www.slurry.org.uk.
Thank you for agreeing to take part in this survey. It should take only a few minutes to tick the
appropriate boxes shown against each of the 11 simple but important questions. These few minutes
could help to shape your village for the future. Please return to either Potten Farm Shop or
Arriba Pet Supplies by 19th September (if you prefer email answers to researchsandra@gmail.com).
