MUSBURY has published its first ever parish plan and revealed the community's views.People agreed that they enjoy living in unspoilt countryside, in a peaceful rural area, with a strong sense of community.They said they were appreciative of the school, church, pub, garage, village hall, post office, stores and playing field and allotments. Overall, the survey showed most people were happy with the way things are - and did not want 'townies'' ideas thrust upon them.Issues raised included: speeding along the A358 and road safety concerns such as parking during the school run, drainage, improving leisure facilities, the need for more NHS dentists locally, the availability of affordable housing for local people and the accessibility of public transport. Chairman of Musbury parish council Colin Corbett said: "The results of the survey have not produced any major surprises but they have confirmed us in our resolve to work with the relevant outside agencies to make progress on the 'problem area'. "Musbury residents are a very active bunch and they have generated many ideas for extra clubs and activities which now just need someone to make them a reality.
