YOUR OPINION COUNTS!
The East Cowes Town & Neighbourhood Plans are an opportunity for local residents to influence what happens in the town over the next fifteen years. The Town Council has created a forum for this purpose, including your Town and County Councillors, representatives of local businesses and services, and local residents like you.
The Town & Neighbourhood Plans will be used alongside the County Council's next Island Plan and must reflect the views of the community, but also conform with the Island Plan's strategic policies. Before these plans can be adopted, we need your views to make sure these plans say what you want them to say.
These plans will set out a vision as to what East Cowes will be like to live and work in over the next fifteen years, and how that vision can be achieved. These plans should be considered in any future decisions involving planning applications, infrastructure, economic regeneration and housing development.
Your response to this questionnaire can be anonymous if you wish. We only need your postcode to make sure that we have a fair range of views from different parts of the town.
Please fill out one questionnaire per household or business. If you fill in this questionnaire online, there is no need to return a paper copy for your household or business.
Your input into these Town & Neighbourhood Plans really is essential!

Mayor of East Cowes
