Local issues and concerns

Screenshot - p08 Voters Cottage, London StreetIn the 500 questionnaires returned from the team’s public opinion survey, 73 per cent of the respondents said they came or stayed in Whitchurch to be in the countryside and think that it is the surrounding countryside (84 per cent) and the River Test (80 per cent) that give Whitchurch its character.

Looking beyond these survey results to the comments received at its Design Day, the team has identified several major concerns and issues of local residents regarding any plans that might threaten this rural setting.

These concerns are translated into some specific guidelines listed in the coloured panel on the right on the next page.
