This weekend saw the launch of our neighbourhood survey, with over 3000 leaflets being delivered to every home and business in Ruddington. The survey aims to gather the views of the residents, workers and business owners in the village about a variety of planning issues that could affect the community in the years ahead.
To support the survey, two community events on 5th June and 9th June were also advertised on the leaflet, where villagers can find out more information about the Neighbourhood Plan, meet the team, ask questions, share their vision for Ruddington, and see some drop-in presentations from our town planning partners Urban Imprint.
Volunteers from across the community came out to help deliver the leaflets in the weekend sunshine, with some young family members from the project team even chipping in! Here’s three of our youngest helpers, armed with their special letterbox insertion tools (a.k.a., spatulas!).

Once the survey closes on 30th June, the data will be analysed and combined with the results of previous surveys (including the Village Plan consultation) to draft a set of Ruddington-specific planning policies for the community to approve, before compiling the final Neighbourhood Plan for submission to Rushcliffe Borough Council and holding a public referendum.
If you live, work, or own a business in Ruddington, it is vitally important that you air your views about the future of the village by completing the survey. All family members are encouraged to take part, even children (with a little help from mum and dad), so that the planning policies for Ruddington can be sure to represent the views of the whole community, young and old, and help shape the future of the village for years to come.
The survey can be accessed online here, or there are paper copies available at St Peter’s Rooms, Perkins Hardware, the Co-Op, Ruddington Medical Centre, and the library.
Have your say about the future development of Ruddington by 30th June!
