FENLANDER: Chance to help shape the future of Wisbech
A NEW survey is being carried out giving local people the chance to help shape the future of Wisbech.
And two special events are being held in the town’s Market Place later this month in a further attempt to sound out popular opinion.
They are the latest stages in the joint Wisbech 2020 Vision project that was launched earlier this year by Fenland District Council, Cambridgweshire County Council and Stephen Barclay, MP for North East Cambridgeshire.
The survey lists more than 20 issues that have been identified as needing to be addressed if Wisbech is to prosper in the years ahead. It asks people to mark the eight they see as most important. It also provides an opportunity to add other ideas or comments.
The survey is available online - simply click the Related Link at the top of this page. Paper copies are available in the Wisbech Fenland @ your service shop and Wisbech library. Responses must be in by September 30.

People will also be able to have their say by visiting a special Wisbech 2020 Vision stand in the Market Place on September 22 and September 29 (10am-3pm).
Councillor Alan Melton, FDC’s Leader, said: “For this Vision to succeed, it is vital that it is not just something imposed on the community from above. We have to have everyone’s ideas, enthusiasm and support. And if we can make the project work in Wisbech, it could act as a pilot for similar ones in Fenland’s other market towns.”
