The development of the plan was overseen by a Steering Committee of 12 volunteer residents of Wickwar with the help of many other villagers.
It involved wide scale consultation within the village. All villagers were invited to indicate what they liked about living in Wickwar and what aspects of village life they would like to see improved.
An Action Plan was produced in June 2005. It was based on the ideas and suggestions that received most support during the consultations undertaken by the Steering Group. It summarizes the areas where action could be taken to enhance the quality of life in Wickwar; it suggests what that action could be and who could consider taking the ideas forward. It was produced in booklet form and was delivered to every household in the village during June and July 2005. Download a copy, or view online by clicking here.
The final report of the Village Plan Steering Committee was produced over the summer of 2005 and was launched by the local Member of Parliament Steve Webb on 8 September 2005. The final report is a full record of the activities that were undertaken to produce the plan and also contains the survey results of the various consultations that were undertaken. Copies of the final report have been forwarded to relevant authorities to provide them with information about what is important to villagers in Wickwar.

Wickwar Parish Council has established a working group to consider the proposals outlined in the Village Plan and to decide on their own action plan for responding to the proposals directed specifically to the Parish Council.
Any individual villager is welcome to take up the ideas proposed in the plan. Please let us know if you are interested in taking up any of the proposals in the Plan by using the Contact Us section of this Website.
