Great Wakering Parish Plan
The Great Wakering Parish Plan Steering Group and the Great Wakering Parish Council are two completely separate organisations. The Parish Plan Steering Group is responsible for producing the Parish Plan document and the survey on which it is based. Though both groups each have Great Wakering's best interests in mind, it should be noted that the Parish Plan Steering Group operates independently of the Parish Council.
On the 23rd September 2015 the Great Wakering Parish Council formally adopted the Great Wakering Parish Plan documents (Parish Plan and Action Plan), as a work of reference when deciding upon issues involving the well-being of Great Wakering.
The Great Wakering Parish Plan Steering Group was formed to work with the residents of Great Wakering with a view to producing a representative Parish Plan. A separate website has been developed which is dedicated to this ambition. In accordance with overarching aims the Parish Plan should be formed for the Community, by the Community.

A Parish Plan is an ideal way to set out what people think about the area they live in - what's good, what's bad and what needs to be changed to ensure it's a great place to live. Creating a Parish Plan is a step towards making sure that your community is one where everyone enjoys a good quality of life - and one that you and your family will continue to enjoy into the future.
The Parish Plan provides a structure that will:
- Reflect the views of all sections of the community
- Identify features and local characteristics that people value
- Identify local needs and opportunities
- Set out a vision of how people want their community to develop and improve both in the present and the future
- Include an action plan to achieve this vision
The Steering Group has gathered your views from the completed questionnaires on how the community sees the future of the village, what is good, bad, how the good can be made better and how the bad can be made very much better.
