Lockerley and East Dean Parish – Residents Questionnaire

Thank you to all households who completed our parish questionnaire. The results have been collated and we have a worthwhile base of information to go forward with further development of our parish plan. About a third of all questionnaires were completed and returned, 35% from East Dean and 29.5% from Lockerley, Tote Hill, Carters Clay and half of Newtown. Most responses were from the 61 to 80 age group, with the second largest group being 41 to 60 year olds. Fewer young people responded because there are fewer young people living in our parishes. The planning for the future of our parishes will be greatly helped by the responses! The full report will be sent out in the Autumn.
