Climate Friendly Aberlady Community Survey - January 2018

Dear Aberlady Resident,

You are invited to complete this online community survey form. It’s highly likely that this is the first time the village has been consulted locally on a range of issues affecting our future, so we hope you will respond positively.

The survey aims to collect and present the community’s views on potential improvements to make our village a healthier, safer and more pleasant place to live, work and play. It includes questions on traffic, pedestrian safety, transport, community gardens, the Sea Green and renewable energy.

While there are a number of questions, the survey should take no more than a few minutes to complete. We are seeking one response per household. The results will help guide and influence future decision-making. They will be submitted to East Lothian Council and to the local community council. The North Berwick Community Area Partnership has said it expects the results to determine its local priorities moving forward.

The survey follows an event held in the Community Hall last May to generate ideas which, with majority support within the community, might be taken forward. This survey is the next step in that consultation process. It is organised by the Climate Friendly Aberlady Planning Group (CFAPG) with support from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. More information on the event can be found on www.facebook.com/climatefriendlyaberlady/. All organisations within the village were invited to contribute to its planning. The CFAPG includes members from the Church, the Conservation and History Society, the Parent Council and the Community Association.

Completed surveys forms should be completed by Friday, 9 February 2018. Responses will remain anonymous; however, if you were to offer volunteer time or advice or, if you’d like to attend a follow-up event on the survey results, we’d be grateful if you could also email your contact details to hello@aberladyheritage.com or call Ian on 07557 236 232 so that we can keep in touch with you.
 
Thank you for your support!
