We were delighted to attend the launch of Canterbury Society’s new ‘Vision for the Future of Canterbury’. Five years ago they produced its first “Vision for the Future of Canterbury”. Following the success of this Vision, and given that many things have changed in the city during this last half decade, they have produced a completely new version; Vision for Canterbury: Towards 2030.
Their aim is to represent the views of local residents about the present and the future of the city and it is based on the responses received from a questionnaire survey carried out over the past year. They asked local people to rank a series of major issues as to their perceived importance and to tell us what was “good” or “not so good” about living in the city. Each section of the vision represents the twelve major issues they identified and have been ordered following the ranking given to them by local people, with the issues seen as most important coming first.
