Health and Wellbeing


The Group will consider all aspects of future planning that will support healthy lifestyles and improved healthcare facilities. This includes sports facilities, footpaths, cycle routes, and healthcare provision within the villages, but excludes water-based activities. Role and use of community buildings will also be considered. For further details, please click here

Terms of Reference

The Health and Leisure group will consider how a neighbourhood plan could improve.

  • indoor and outdoor healthy recreational facilities (but not river and harbour activities).
  • facilities for walking and cycling
  • health care within the villages
  • access to health care facilities outside the villages
  • the needs of those with limited mobility

 Current Tasks

A list of tasks can be found at the Ideas Register page.  As progress is made with individual tasks allocated to the Health and Leisure Working Group, details will be given here.  Once Discussion Papers have been written on a subject the papers will be placed in the Library at the Health and Leisure section.  They may be accessed by clicking on the appropriate link listed below beneath the map window.

To date our Group has concentrated on cataloguing the leisure assets that currently exist in the Parish.  These are tabulated in a short paper which is held in the Library.

In addition we have obtained useful feedback on the leisure needs of the Parish through our participation in the Village Fete held over the Bank Holiday weekend.  Your ideas are shown in a second document, also held in the Library.


We distributed our H &W Questionnaire in October and posted it on line at this website.  If you missed it you may see it by

We have now received and analysed all your returns.  Our evaluation of the results may be seen by
