A NEW Big Local Plan for Eastern Sheppey

Big Local Eastern Sheppey (BLES) is reviewing its current Big Local Plan (2015-18) and developing a NEW Big Local Plan for the next three years (2018-21). To do this, BLES want to hear from local residents about where you think we can make a real difference and what you want to see changed in your community.
  
The online survey is targeted at people who live, work or volunteer on Eastern Sheppey (including Eastchurch, Leysdown & Warden). This includes organisations working in the area and local businesses as well as seasonal residents. Our intention is to ensure that the survey sample reflects the diversity that is Eastern Sheppey and we encourage participation from minority ethnic groups, people with disabilities, young people and others whose voices are seldom heard.

What is Big Local Eastern Sheppey?
Big Local is an exciting opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1,000,000 each to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. Big Local brings together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
What's it not about?
It's NOT about local authorities, the government or a national organisation telling people what to do. It's NOT about individual groups fixing their favourite problem without talking to a wide range of different people who live, socialise and work in the community. It's NOT about short-term thinking - Big Local areas have 10 years or more to plan and deliver the best options for their area.
