In the light of discussions (above) with Council Officers to discuss the best structure for our plan and the best process to achieve that. A key part of this is learning from what others are doing.  Take a look at the Mendlesham Plan online which is currently the only completed and live plan in Mid -Suffolk.  There are others.  If you have views on the neighbourhood plan, take a look and bring your thoughts on how to take the plan forward.

Neighbourhood Plan Drop-In Event Success

Suggestions collected on post-it notes around what may become the main strands of the plan, will now be transcribed and made available.  There were around 140 signatures in agreement with the Parish Boundary as the Plan Boundary which is more than statistically significant for Walsham.

An application will now be submitted by the via the Parish Clerk.  This will mean that the Walsham will then be recognised by the District Council as a Live Neighbourhood Plan Parish.

A Wash-Up meeting will be held on July 4th at 7pm in the Blue Boar.   On the agenda, as well as a drink, will be the picking of the winning entries from the  competition to create a Neighbourhood Plan logo (children from the village stepped up enthusiastically to this task) and to talk about how the working groups will be set up to run over the summer and how promotion will be organised for Garden’s Weekend.

Come and get involved, come along on Wednesday!
