BROADWINDSOR GROUP PARISH COUNCIL
invites you to a
NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN MEETING
DRIMPTON VILLAGE HALL
TUESDAY 7 APRIL
Following the first meeting about the proposed Neighbourhood Plan and the confusion felt by some regarding the possible advantages to our parish, the parish council is organising another meeting to help clarify the situation. It is inviting Fred Horsington from Cerne Valley, the first parish in the county to produce a plan and have it approved, and Jo Witherden who was employed by Cerne Valley as a consultant and provided advice and guidance through all stages of their plan. Parish councillors feel that having speakers who have been through this process will give people a better understanding of the process.
