The wide ranging community engagement drive aimed at giving residents, businesses and local groups from Falmouth a real say on how the town should develop up to 2030 has been extended to 22nd May.

Councillor Candy Atherton, who leads the Falmouth Neighbourhood Plan Stakeholder Group for the Town Council, said ‘We have been getting a lot of interest with over 100 people attending our drop-in sessions to talk, and 360 postal questionnaire responses have been received. Our website has had nearly 5,800 hits, with 585 online questionnaire responses since we launched at the end of March. Twitter retweets and mentions have been very extensive as well.

However, delays with our distributors mean that many households still haven’t received their copy of the leaflet and questionnaire, and as the level of interest so far suggests that many more will want to have their say, we are extending the deadline to Friday 22nd May.’

There is also a website www.planforfalmouth.info where people can find out more and complete the questionnaire on-line. On-line responses are cheaper for us all.
