Potential Directions for Strategic Housing Growth

Parish Council Questionnaire results:
Trimley St Mary Parish Council carried out a consultation exercise in September 2005 by distributing a questionnaire to every household in the village. This asked for the views of residents on local planning, road traffic and rail traffic issues as well as some questions about the accessibility of the parish council.
