A survey is to be sent to all residents of the St Keverne parish this spring to find out what they hope to see happen to the area they live in over the coming years.

Before then, however, the questions need to be finalised and fine-tuned, to make sure it covers all the necessary issues.

As a result, the Neighbourhood Development Plan committee, chaired by David Lambrick, is looking for help from people living in the parish, which also includes Coverack, Porthallow, Porthoustock and further-reaching rural areas, such as Traboe.

Three separate groups are focussing on the environment, the economy and social matters - including housing and planning - and will all be joining on Tuesday, February 12 at Porthallow Village Hall from 7pm to share their progress.

It is hoped members of the public will go along to give their views on what has been created so far, to make sure the survey is ready to go out.

The committee will also be looking for help in delivering the surveys in the spring.

Joint secretary Katie Nightingale said: "Many residents already enjoy beautiful walks through the parish, with or without the company of a furry friend. Should anyone like to volunteer to deliver surveys through the parish, once the committee is ready to proceed, then they should please contact us."

To volunteer to help out email Katie via kitso19@hotmail.com, other joint secretary Michaela Peters via michaelakemp20@hotmail.co.uk, or chair David Lambrick on 01326 280117.
