Neighbourhood Plan seeks a committee

The opportunity to help shape the village over decades ahead is the remit of the East Keswick Neighbourhood Plan Committee to be convened soon. Under powers created by the recent Communities Act, villages will have the opportunity to create a neighbourhood plan which will carry legal weight. A plan might encompass village views on its infrastructure, housing development, transport links, public services, the environment and other services.

East Keswick Parish Council wants to facilitate a group to oversee the formation of a plan, to take soundings, consult the community and ultimately produce a document which will be put to the vote. An initial meeting for would be committee members is likely to take place mid July. If you might like to attend, please email june.gallant@virgin.net
