Neighbourhood Plan Meeting on October 5th at 6:00pm

The Stapleford and Great Shelford Neighbourhood Plan steering group will meet again this Thursday 5th October at 6.00pm in the community room at Cox’s Close in Stapleford.

We are a very informal group and all members of the community are welcome to join us. Indeed, we depend on your ideas as to how you would like the villages to look in 20 years’ time, and what improvements you would like to see. Some of you have already submitted ideas at our various consultation events, and we have tried to take these into account in the proposals being drawn up by our four “spotlight groups”.

For this meeting we are joined by Mark Deas of Cambridgeshire ACRE, who is now retained by the group to advise us on the development of the plan. Mark also put together the housing needs surveys for the two parish councils, and some of you will have met him at the open meeting on affordable housing (Great Shelford, 5th September).

Mark will be providing support for the spotlight groups, to run a “scoping workshop” later in the year, to help us put the various ideas into a workable plan.

We look forward to seeing you again, to hearing more of your ideas for our villages, and your reaction to the ideas we have put together so far.
