For the villages of Silkstone and Silkstone Common

Update: November 14 - The Parish Plan was due to be updated last year and the Parish Council carried out a poll to seek residents' opinion on whether a full Parish Plan should be completed. Only a few people responded to the poll so the Parish Council did not progress a full review of the Parish Plan. Instead they produced a Forward Plan which is now reviewed annually. The information below relating to the original Parish Plan is therefore for historical interest only.

The Parish Plan for Silkstone and Silkstone Common stems from a consultation exercise in which every household in the two villages was invited to complete a questionnaire and submit comments on issues of importance to the local community. The response was extremely good, and a small team of volunteers has since been compiling and tabulating the results.

A printed document containing a summary of this information has been delivered to every house (we hope!), and the full results can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
