Having your say.

Broadwindsor Neighbourhood Plan Committee Public Meetings

The Neighbourhood Plan committee invites all residents of the Broadwindsor Group Parish to attend two meetings:

The first on 9th February at Comrades Hall, Broadwindsor
The second on 23rd February at Drimpton Village Hall.

Both meetings start at 7.30pm.

The meetings are to collate everybody’s views and opinions on what to consider for our Neighbourhood Plan.

Items we want to cover at the meetings include:
Local needs:
Housing / Business / Social / Transport / Other Infrastructure.
The assets we need to protect:
Landscape / Heritage / Character / Wildlife / Community Facilities.
Places that could be changed for the better and provide development opportunities.

Please put your thinking caps on so that we can make good use of these meetings to enable our plan to evolve to serve our community and future generations well.

The Neighbourhood Plan Committee needs your input to ensure that this happens.
