Community Plan


Hail Weston Community Plan (CP)

Was borne out of a rural white paper

“Our Countryside – The Future” published in 2000.

Parish Plans are aimed at strengthening rural communities by aiding residents to shape their future, a process further reinforced by the Localism Act of 2011.

The process commenced in January 2014 with a series of workshops.  Two years of commitment by Hail Weston parish residents resulted in the publication of this document 2016 – 2021.  The Action Group, team members led by Barry Easom were instrumental to the publication of the plan.

The first Community Led Plan was a resounding success which saw the introduction of the Village Cafe, lower speed limits both within the village and along the B645, the installation of two defibrillators, the launch of the phone box library, playing field improvements, and the establishment of a Bridge Group among many other initiatives.

We are delighted to announce that the survey for the new Community Led Plan will launch on 20 March 2022. This will be your opportunity to give your views about the village and to say to what extent and how you think it could be improved in the next five years.  

The questionnaire link is   Please don’t share survey link on social media etc as we only want Hail Westoners to complete it!

We are aiming to build on the success of the original plan and it will be all the more effective the greater the number of people who take part and complete the survey and express their views.

You will be able to complete the survey online and the appropriate link will be widely available from mid-March. Those who are more comfortable with a more traditional format will be able to complete a paper survey.

To promote participation, there will be a prize draw for £100 which will be open to all participants but your responses to the survey itself will be anonymous.

We had hoped to launch the consultation last year but Covid intervened and we thought it best to delay the launch to encourage the greatest possible take-up in 2022. The time has now arrived to open the survey and we are looking forward to a very high response so we can understand how you would like Hail Weston to improve over the next five years.
