Neighbourhood Plan Progress

This is to keep you updated on progress with setting up the Plan.

The Planning regulations require 21 people to sign up to be Forum members. At the Sunday drop-in launch, there were more than 21 who signed up, so the Plan group had an inaugural meeting on Friday 3 Aug to vote in a management committee, agree lead persons for the working groups and agree the constitution. Julie Baker (who is a WCA director) has been voted on as Chair. The Group has submitting the constitution to the Council, along with a proposed boundary for Wrenthorpe and a list of Forum members. This is just the start while the Council do their consultation with the community which could take between 13 – 20 weeks.
The Group intends to stay active during this time:
- making sure that the community know about the council consultation as they will need to vote it in,
- setting up working groups,
- creating a website and a Facebook page.
There’s a consultation map of the proposed Wrenthorpe boundary on the noticeboard inside the Village Hall.

The Group has set dates for Forum meetings: 4th October, 1st November and 13th December 2018 all to be held at Valley Crescent Meeting house at 19.00hrs.
