Results of Parish Survey

Thank you to all those who participated in the village survey. We achieved a response rate of 54 per cent which is a fantastic response.  These responses have been collated and interpreted to produce a report.  To view a copy of the report please click here.

The next step is to create working groups looking in more depth at six areas of housing & the built environment, the natural environment, climate change & renewable energy, local economy, transport & streetscape and leisure & recreation. A large number of people volunteered to be part of the next stage and we will be getting in touch with these residents shortly.

CLARIFICATION:  There are no agreed areas for Housing within Riding Mill in either parish council or Northumberland County Council plans and comments in the report are individual opinions expressed by residents and are not policy of the parish council or the County Council.
