The draft Box Parish Communities Plan has now been compiled and presented to the Parish Council at its meeting on the 28th February 2013.
These conclusions were arrived at after volunteer councillors had carried out a number of consultations with local groups in the parish and naturally took into consideration the findings arrived at by an analysis of the 316 submitted questionnaires completed in November/December 2011.

Below can be found the results and findings obtained from the questionnaires submitted
Volunteers at the parish council have now collated all the questionnaires submitted by parishioners, both by handing in the paper version distributed to every household and those submitted electronically via this website.
So, the findings !
The statistics obtained have been put into TABLES. Our interpretation of those statistics/tables is presented as a 'narrative' or findings.
The cost of distributing these findings, using paper, and delivered to every household would not be cost effective and arguably unjustifiable.
The questionnaires were rightly submitted anonymously. Some 316 parishioners did this (18% of the total number of households in the parish). If we knew who had completed the questionnaires, the possibility of sending the findings to those who did would be considered.
However, question 24 in the questionnaire asked "Do you have access to the internet at home?" The result was 78% stating that they did. If we assume that even more have access elsewhere (such as at work), then the cost if 'delivering' the results to over 80% of the community via this website is precisely NIL!
