UNPviaductstampAll residents of Uplyme should now have received a white envelope with the Viaduct stamp on it. Inside, you’ll find issue 2 of “Uplyme Together”, a newsletter that explains what’s happened recently in the Neighbourhood Plan project. It asks you to give your feedback on the most important issues that people wanted the group to look at. Replies should be returned to the Clerk, a Councillor, or left at Uplyme Post Office by 30th September. There is a £50 prize for a lucky winner picked out of the hat – so make sure you fill in your name and phone number on the back page if you want to be in with a chance!

(In case anyone is puzzled by missing text in question 3, it should say ‘Would you accept more traffic calming to allow a “village square” between the Village Hall and the site of the new school?’ This vanished at the printers!)

There is also a brown addressed envelope containing a housing needs survey. Affordable housing was one of the most requested items in previous consultations, so we do need you to reply to this, especially if you want to live in Uplyme but can’t find the right sort of accommodation (shared equity, self-build, one bedroom starter homes etc.) Again, the closing date is 30th September.

If you don’t have the papers to complete or need an extra copy, you can ask for one at the Post Office, download them, or ring Councillor John Garland on 07787 551924.
