Freshford and Limpley Stoke Neighbourhood Plan

posted 21 Feb 2013, 03:48 by Parish Council Communications

The next stage of the Neighbourhood Plan process has arrived.  The thinking so far has been summarized in a leaflet – ‘Making Progress’ – which incorporates a questionnaire so that residents can give their feedback.  Everyone in the community is warmly encouraged to let us know what they think.

‘Making Progress’ will be delivered to every household in Freshford and Limpley Stoke between 20thand 22nd February.  You are asked to answer the questions in the leaflet and then put the leaflet in the supplied polythene envelope outside your house for collection.  The card delivered with the leaflets shows the day on which they will be collected - between 4th and 6th March.  

We are keen to hear from as many people as possible – including younger people and others who have a stake, for example if they work in the neighbourhood.  So, if you have not received a copy by 23rd February or require a further copy, they will be available from the Galleries Shop.

To support the distribution of ‘Making Progress’ we will again be holding the popular Neighbourhood Plan Surgeries from 10.30 to 12.30 on Saturday 23rd February, at The Hop Pole Inn, and on Saturday 2nd March, at Freshford Village Memorial Hall.  You will be able to come along and speak to members of the Neighbourhood Plan team and ask any questions you may have about the leaflet/questionnaire and about the Neighbourhood Plan process.

‘Making Progress’ is emphatically not the Neighbourhood Plan but is an important part of the process.  When the Plan itself is submitted for review we will need to show the degree of support in the community for the proposals it contains, so your views count.  If you are broadly happy with the proposals, or if you have specific points you would like to make, it is important that you should say so.  Your comments do not commit you in any way but will help your Councils decide what should go forward in our final Neighbourhood Plan.
