Parish Plan Progress

Fletching Parish Action Plan

The new Parish Action Plan is now complete.  Over 30% of households responded to the questionnaire and it is clear that you like living in the parish because of the beautiful countryside, Fletching’s picturesque High Street, the great village shop, pubs and church.  You also like having great neighbours, community spirit and general peace and quiet.

The areas of concern are clear too.  In Fletching village you consider parking to be an issue.  In the parish as a whole, you are concerned about speeding, cyclists, litter, hedge maintenance and road maintenance.  You would like to see improvements to broadband speed, public transport and the village hall.  You do not want street lighting in any part of the parish.

 The Parish Action Plan details all the issues identified and how it is intended to tackle them.  Some issues are already being worked on.  There are some immediate priorities and quick win projects, including improving communication with everyone in the parish. 

The Steering Group has also produced a useful list of contacts, so that you know what kinds of issues (e.g. potholes, litter) you can report and how and where to report them.

The Parish Action Plan can be viewed in full online at or you can request a paper copy from the Secretary on 01444 483080 or

We are still looking for more volunteers to join our Steering Group and Focus Groups.  The more volunteers we have, the more we can achieve.  If you are interested in helping shape some of our projects and move them forward, please contact Katherine Rumble on 01444 483080 or e-mail
