Last Wednesday’s meeting at Tavistock Town Hall was a great opportunity to meet the steering group, talk about the survey and to think about our plans for the future.
A Big Thank You to the local residents who joined the meeting. 
What are the survey respondents’ top priorities for improvements 
• Affordable housing
• Transport; railway, traffic on the roads and cycling ways
• Environment; sustainability, green spaces and renewable energy
The release of the survey results is just the beginning of our journey! In the coming months we will be looking to the local community to assist in devising the plan for our future, using the results of the survey as a starting point. For example, If you have interest, enthusiasm or experience in the area of affordable housing, we would really like to hear from you shortly, as this will be one of our top priorities. There is still room on the steering group if you’d like to join. However, if you feel you would like to help but don’t have so much time – that’s fine, any assistance and contribution of ideas is very welcome. Please let us know if you would like to join the steering group or assist us on any aspect of the plan.
