Results On The CIL Consultation

In late January and early February 2020, Stratfield Mortimer Parish Council held a public consultation (via an exhibition and a survey in parish council newsletter and online) regarding several possible projects which the Parish Council could undertake using CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy).

You can read about the consultation in more detail here.

The consultation was a significant success with 529 surveys completed (249 on paper and 280 online). As well as giving their opinion on the proposed projects, respondents submitted their own ideas for future projects.

Three projects have sufficient support in order for SMPC to move forward on now; others may need rethinking and looking at again in a different format in the future.

The three projects are:

Pavement widening down The Street

74% in favour
(521 responses)

SMPC owning and running the Library building

81% in favour
(514 responses)

Footpath/cycleway between Mortimer & Burghfield

72% in favour
(513 responses)

You can find more information on all the results here.

The comments and ideas for new projects (Question 16) are still being collated and analysed and will be published separately soon.

With many thanks to everyone who took part and gave us their feedback, comments and additional ideas. If you put yourself forward as a library trustee, we will be touch shortly.
