NEXT MEETING on TUESDAY 10th or 17th AUGUST at 5PM on Zoom (date TBC)


Sandon-Crown​A group of residents in Sandon have started the process of producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan. A questionnaire has been circulated via the Sandon Topics and the results have now been analysed.

Thank you to all who completed the questionnaire either electronically or on paper. A short video was shown and a presentation given at the Sandon Annual assembly on Tuesday 24th April at Sandon School. (This is a link to the video. It will open in a separate window.)

The film shows different parts of Sandon and the voice-over gives more information about the neighbourhood development plan process.

The Questionnaire Results are available on this website.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the assembly to hear what your fellow Sandon residents think about the village and how they wish to see it in the future.

The draw for the £50 prize winner was made and the winner is Mr Brian Moss.

We are keen to hear from any residents who would like to help with the production of the plan. We know there are people out there who have skills in writing, design, marketing, planning, organising or just being interested in what we are doing. Please get in touch via Contact Us if you think you might be interested.
