PUBLIC CONSULTATION EVENT
THE MEMORIAL HALL, LERRYN
THURSDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER 2010, from 3 - 00 p.m to 9 - 00 p.m
What is a Parish Plan ?
A Parish Plan is a statement of how the community sees itself developing over the coming years. It:
* reflects the views of all sections of the community;
* identifies which features and local characteristics people value;
* identifies local problems and opportunities;
* spells out how residents want the community to develop in the future;
* prepares a plan of action to achieve this vision.
Why produce a Parish Plan ?
It is Government policy to increase individual participation in public life and for public bodies to consult communities about the delivery of services. As part of this policy the government wants to give more power to parish councils to decide what’s best for their communities. It will give the parish council the evidence to help inform policy-making by a range of organisations, from the local planning authority to the police and health service. It will also help them to develop and maintain effective working relations with those outside bodies that provide services to our community.
Who should be involved ?
The parish council takes responsibility for producing and endorsing a Parish Plan, with everyone in the community having the opportunity to contribute their views and their skills, energy and experience to produce the plan.
We would welcome all members of the community to this consultation event and would welcome your views on;
Planning , Housing, Transport & highways , Environment, Energy,
Business, Recreation & Leisure, any other items you feel strongly about.
