Cranbrook Community Opinions Sought

Cranbrook invited to have a say about their community for a chance to win a £50 shopping voucher!

The annual Cranbrook Community Questionnaire is now landing on doorsteps asking residents for their views, ideas and priorities for the future of their town.

This year there is an added incentive, a £50 shopping voucher! To be in with a chance of winning Cranbrook residents just need to respond to the survey by the deadline of 21 December 2015.

The Cranbrook Community Questionnaire is organised and sent out jointly from East Devon District Council and East Devon Volunteer Services Association (EDVSA) and is a valuable tool in helping the community grow and identify needs of residents.

Make a Difference

Residents can make a difference to what happens in their community just by completing the questionnaire.

Cranbrook resident and East Devon District Councillor Maria Hale (Broadclyst Ward) said: "It's important for everyone to complete the survey. It gives us very valuable information about the views of people who live in Cranbrook and what’s important to them. It helps us plan for the future of the town and respond to the wishes of local people, and could also help get grant funding for projects in the town."

Keith Johnson, Community Development Worker for Cranbrook (EDVSA) (pictured) added: “There’s a separate questionnaire for young people to fill in, which will tell us how they want to spend their time. There are lots of ideas being discussed so if young people complete the survey, they can say what is important to them.

Every year the results of the community survey are used by organisations including the Town Council to help plan the future for Cranbrook. The involvement of local people helps ensure that we address their concerns."
