Meetings to give answer to Helston's £250,000 question

First published in News

Results from a town-wide questionnaire on the spending of £250,000 in Helston will be made public at two meetings.

These will take place on Thursday, March 13 at 7pm in the upstairs of the Guildhall, with another the following Tuesday at 7.30pm, at Nansloe Academy. Both are aimed at members of the public attending.

The questionnaire saw around a six per cent return from residents, with 300 sent back of the 5,500 that were delivered to every home in the town.

Town centre regeneration officer Martin Searle, who led the questionnaires with project assistant Amanda Boxer, said: “This was not quite as high a return as I hoped for, but still very valid.”

He told the town’s councillors that one or two addresses or areas were reported not to have received questionnaires and when this happened the office did try to provide them.

The booklets asked questions on a number of areas, from town lighting and seating to safety and the possibility of pedestrianising Meneage Street, summarising points raised at a consultation meeting last October.

Councillor Martine Knight said: “I would like to congratulate Martin and Amanda on the incredible amount of work they have done. I know there are volunteers that have worked hard as well.”

Her comments were agreed with by all the councillors.

That is not a very good return out of 5,500 that were delivered.

Wouldn't it be nice for a change in Helston, if what 'Cllr anybody else' said, was reported instead of the same Cllr. I feel sure shes not the only Cllr to say anything. Maybe they should have included the villages in their survey or arent they bothered if people from the villages dont go to Helston Town Centre.
