RESIDENTS of the Little Malvern and Welland parish are being urged to have their say in shaping the future development of the village.

A questionnaire has been distributed this week as part of the parish council's Neighbourhood Development Plan.

"We want to get a good response from this," said parish council chairman Don Atkinson.

"It's only by getting the views of the residents can we ensure that our plan will deliver to people what they want, so I cannot stress strongly enough how vital it is that residents complete and return them.

"The responses and the ideas that are forwarded will be used to prepare policies on subjects such as planning and transport and will be adopted by Malvern Hills District Council to shape any future growth".

As a small thank-you every form that is returned will be entered into a £50 prize draw.
