We have started work on Parish Plan 3 (PP3) . We have now undertake two initial community engagement events in May. The purpose of the events was to launch the plan preparation. We hope that we can find out:
- what are the issues that people feel the Parish Council ought be tackling over the next five years;
- what ideas people have about how issues can be tackled, and
- what ideas people have of how we can get people involved.
There were initially two events. The first was aimed at engaging Quarrington Hill people. It took place on Saturday 11 May 2019 at Quarrington Hill Community Centre. Everyone was welcome, following a leaflet drop to all households and we encouraged a good turn out. It was initially your chance to air your views. While there was a low turnout to the event, it proved very positive because issues were aired and volunteers to join a Steering Group came forward.
The second event, aimed a those who live and work in Coxhoe, took place at Coxhoe Village Hall on 18 May 2019 between 10.30am and 11.30am. Despite the weather we had about 30 people present where residents engaged with Councillors to put ideas forward.
We will determine how we progress once we have considered the results of the events.. However we will be hoping to get volunteers on board to set up a Steering Group. We would hope to hold further events to test out views on local issues while undertaking surveys where appropriate. Details of events and progress will be available here, on noticeboards in the village and published in The Chronicle where possible.
We need people to come along to our events and participate in the development of the Plan. Remember its Your Village, Your Future, Your Say.
