What was achieved

Apart from providing a plan for future changes the following things changed as a result of creating it:

  • Noticeboard for Clubs and Societies on the Village Stores
  • More dog mess bins
  • Improved rubbish bin collection
  • Sink in boys toilets plus drinking water tap
  • School crossing
  • Youth bus

Ideas that were investigated further:

  • The Parish Council have referred the request for a cycle path to Churchill to North Somerset Council but it is unlikely to get funding
  • The Parish Council is still pursuing low cost housing in the village (but there would be consultation before any firm plans are produced)
  • The Parish Plan team formed a splinter group to look at prospects for a new village club but this has foundered because there is no practical site
