Bury Village Neighbourhood Steering group needs people of Bury to help our village develop the way we would like it to..
Do you think you can make a difference? Yes you can! It’s all about a team effort!
Why are we undertaking this process ?
A Neighbourhood Plan (NP) is a plan for the neighbourhood area i.e. the Designated area of Bury Parish which includes policies and ideas that become part of the HDC local plan and have to be taken into account by the planners. Something that does not happen in all cases now.
What is it?
The NP gives our community direct power to develop a shared vision for our neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of our Parish.
The plan has teeth in planning law: providing influence over planning decisions; giving the
opportunity to specify sites for development; and enabling us to add detail to Local
Plan policies to shape development in our area. The process can identify non-planning desires and objectives that are taken forward by our community.
We will gauge opinion on thoughts, ideas and concerns you have by a questionnaire that all residents of Bury Village should contribute to. There will be more detail on this process as we progress.
In the meantime if you would like to engage in email please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (please copy the email address into your email client)

General evidence sources
National sources: Census 2011
The Census 2011 provides the most wide ranging, small area, and robust (ie they actually asked everyone rather than doing a sample survey) dataset available for socio-economic statistics. The parish profile linked below provides a wide range of Census data for Bury, and is a good place to start when thinking about your parish.
Local sources: Cambridgeshire Insight – Cambridgeshire County Council Research Group’s evidence website
The County Council publishes lots of useful data in various formats including reports, spreadsheets and interactive data atlases. Most of the links below are from this website.
Topic specific evidence sources
Population, split into all age groups from birth upwards, split into employment status by age group if possible together with ethnicity
The Census 2011 parish profile provides data by age, ethnicity, and employment status, although these characteristics aren’t linked together in the profile so you can’t really interrogate them.
If you want to dig further then most Census 2011 outputs are available from www.nomisweb.co.uk. The following page is a good place to start, as you can click on query dataset… to get more detail such as data by age.
County Council population and dwelling estimates and forecasts (available by parish/ward for estimates and wards by age bands; single year of age is available on request)
Pensioner and Child Benefit data
I’m not aware of this particular data being open to the public. However, the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2010 (to Lower Super Output Area, which is smaller than a ward) includes individual indices such as child well-being and economic deprivation.
Please note that the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2015 is due out in the autumn, although I don’t know if the County Council will produce a new atlas for this. If a member of your steering group is happy with spreadsheets and statistics then they could Google it when the time comes.
Housing, split into ownership type and property type e.g. flat, house, detached etc… and Council Tax bands
The data atlas below has a whole range of information about housing at parish level.
Transport, split into bus services through the parish, any vehicle census/traffic survey information
The Census profile above shows how people travelled to work in 2011.
County Council traffic count data 2009-13: There are a number of counts from near Ramsey/Bury: http://opendata.cambridgeshireinsight.org.uk/dataset/traffic-count-data-2009-2013
You can exactly see where the traffic monitors were by using the Eastings/Northings in the spreadsheet and putting these into a web map such as http://gridreferencefinder.com/gmap.php
The interactive crime atlas (to ward-level) linked above should get you going on this:http://www.cambridgeshireinsight.org.uk/interactive-maps/crime
Police.uk also has local area data on crime:http://www.police.uk/cambridgeshire/Hunts_St_Ives_and_Ramsey/crime/
Devolution deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
We want your views on a possible devolution deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
By filling out this survey your views will be taken into account by councillors and partners who are set to debate the issue later in the year. The results of the consultation will also be shared with Government who would have to agree any devolution deal for the area. Councils have proposed a deal to Government that could see more decisions made in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by a new organisation called a Combined Authority. Currently Government makes these decisions on Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s behalf.
A survey is now out on business plan 20 16/17 around Council tax have your say.
