PEOPLE are being invited to have their say on how the villages of Wraxall and Failand should develop over future years.Wraxall and Failand Parish Council is holding two public meetings in a bid to attract residents living in the parish to put forward ideas in a bid to create a blueprint for the two villages.The council started the process of drawing up a parish plan earlier this year and formed a steering group to drive the initiative forward.Parish plan steering group chairman Doug Macmillan said: "Parish plans are set up to address all issues concerning residents of the parish and members of the public who use the area such as transport, health, sports, leisure, safety environment and planning."At the meeting the public will be told more about the parish plans and will be invited to say what they like and dislike about the area and what they want changing and preserving."I am urging people to attend the meetings if they want to have a say on the future of the area."The greater representation of views on specific topics, the more weight will be carried when trying to put pressure on those in authority who make the decisions for improvement and change."The first meeting is at Failand village hall tomorrow (Thurs) at 7.30pm with a further meeting planned at the New Battleaxes pub on September 27 at 7.30pm.Following the meeting all houses in both villages will be sent a questionnaire addressing topics raised at the parish plan events.The results of the survey will be analysed in the New Year and the parish plan and action plan then published.Volunteers are also needed to help put together the parish plan and anyone who wants to get involved can email wraxall_failand@btinternet.com
