In early 2021 two surveys were carried out, with a leaflet going to every home asking for residents' views. The first survey was the Masterplan consultation - not a design to be built, but a vision of what the new town centre could be. That survey closed at the end of January 2021 and the results were published in April. The statement issued by the Steering Group following that survey is shown here.

The second survey was issued by HDD - the Co-op's developers with a suggested design for the replacement Meridian Centre. At the time of writing, we don't have the published results of that survey.

Whilst much of the focus has been on the Meridian Centre site, it is important to remember that the Neighbourhood Development Plan encompasses the entire area, from the downland fringe to the clifftop - and green spaces as well as housing.
