Spotlight for Plan
Helmdon Parish Plan will come under the spotlight again next
week as residents of Helmdon and its surrounding areas gather
for it presentation.
The final plan, written up as a result of the surveys sent
out earlier this year is ready to be shown to the public and
will be presented at a meeting next Wednesday, July 14, from
7.30pm in Helmdon Reading Room.
Danny Moody, chair of the steering group for the plan, is
hoping plenty of residents will turn out for the presentation
and show their support for the plan.
He said: "We have done a lot of consultation, now it's
time to feedback to those who will be affected by the plan.
"Some things can be achieved very quickly and easily
whilst others are more long term.
"We have looked at the needs of the village and produced
a plan to help us meet them.
"The steering group has drawn up the 36-point plan in
the hope that it can provide a new direction for the village
over the next five to ten years.
Mr Moody added: "The plan will stay on paper and gather
dust unless lot of volunteers come forward to help put the
plan into action.
"There is something for everyone no matter how small
or large their commitment.
"So far the support from the village has been fantastic.
"County councillor James Shepherd-Cross, district councillor
Robin Digby and deputy chief executive of NACRE Rachael Abbott
will all be on hand at the meeting to talk about the effects
of the parish plans on local policies.
