Neighbourhood Plan Meeting

Posted on

BROADWINDSOR GROUP PARISH COUNCIL

invites you to a

NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN MEETING 

at

DRIMPTON VILLAGE HALL

on

TUESDAY 7 APRIL

at 7.30pm

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.

ALL WELCOME
