The Progress Group, a working group of the Parish Council, has, on the PC’s behalf, compiled a survey to assess the future housing needs of the village. It will be used to inform any future development and to give evidence to support or refuse proposals.

We would prefer you to complete the Survey online using the following link,


however paper copies can be requested from the Parish Clerk, blisworthparishcouncil@gmail.com or pick up a copy from AJ’s shop, the surgery, Baptist Church coffee house, St John’s Church and the Royal Oak.

There are already 3 developments in progress and another in planning so there is no time to lose.

Please do complete it as we want the maximum coverage to reflect all the residents of Blisworth, interested parties, ages and groups in our village.  You do not need to be a current resident of Blisworth to take part.
