PEOPLE in Wraxall and Failand are being urged to come forward and have their say on the future of the two villages.Wraxall and Failand Parish Council is planning to draw up a parish plan which will act as a blueprint for how the two villages will develop over the next few decades.A special steering group is now going to be formed to draw up the document which will set down views on issues including planning, transport and the environment.It will also look at housing needs in both parishes and include what the aspirations of the local community are.The costs of putting together the plan have been funded by the Quartet Community Foundation which gave a grant of £2,780.Wraxall and Failand Parish Council chairman Chris Ambrose said: "We don't want it to be the parish council which sets out the future of the two villages, but the people who live in them."We want to know what people like and dislike about the villages and what they would like to see improved."It is important we put together a parish plan as it will feed into the North Somerset Plan."It will also be used as a guide when it comes to looking at any major planning applications or changes in the two villages. There are some issues that we may not be able to control, but at least with a plan in place, we have put our marker down."It is likely the first step towards formulating a plan will be to send a questionnaire to all homes in the villages.Anyone who wants to have their say on how Wraxall or Failand should develop over the next few years or anyone who wants to join the steering group can email their views to wfpc@waitrose.com
