Community Review Project 2024

The Community Council for Somerset (CCS)  is undertaking a Community Review Project to enable parish councils to engage with their communities in an inclusive and meaningful way to create a Community Plan to address the needs and ambitions of the parish. 

We are pleased to announce that Milverton Parish has been selected to participate in this process. This will commence in the Spring of this year and conclude in the Autumn – it will involve forming a ‘Steering Group’ of around six to eight volunteers from within our community. All aspects and issues affecting our community are up for discussion – be it traffic, parking, public transport, amenities such as a youth club, environment, education, new development, etc. 

We are looking for volunteers from around the parish of all ages and interests to participate. There will be some online training (with flexible timings) and we have already been allocated an advisor to help us through the process. The idea will be to put together a Community Survey for distribution mid Summer to all parishioners. The results of the survey will be collated and analysed  and, in conjunction with the Steering Group, 

CCS will produce a Community Review Report and an Action Plan incorporating recommendations for projects within our community as well as potential funding streams to help finance these projects. 

If you would like to know more and/or volunteer for this project please contact Milverton Parish Council at  no later than Friday 5 April.
