Local knowledge, ideas and foot leather needed
The December Neighbourhood Plan meeting started setting up small groups of local volunteers to gather existing information, and come up with ideas for our future on
  Outdoor Green Space
  Mobility and Transport
  Community Facilities and Services
  Design and Development of the built environment
If you can help with local knowledge or bright ideas on any of these subjects, please contact the organisers by e-mail Here  and they will put you in touch with the relevant group(s). You don’t have to be a specialist, you just need to be interested.
In early January a Housing Needs Survey form was distributed around the parish, including Chesterwood, Langley, Grindon and all other properties.
