The consultation on the potential relocation of the War Memorial closed on 31 July 2021. 5500 consultation documents were distributed to households across the Parish and there was a high response rate of 10.8%.
We would like to thank everyone who responded for their interest in this important project, and for the many comments received.
Of those responding 89% supported the proposed relocation of the Memorial to the site adjacent to the Memorial Park, and 11% objected to the relocation.
Of those objecting, almost 40% supported the relocation of the Memorial, but not to the chosen site.
On 16 September 2021 the Council considered the current position and the consultation outcome and formally agreed to proceed with the project.
