Town council seeks views of town's younger residents as part of Neighbourhood Plan work
The views of Epping's young people are being sought by the town council as it continues its work on a Neighbourhood Plan.
A informal round table discussion hosted by Epping Town Council's two youngest councillors - Holly Whitbread and Daniel Spillman - is at Epping Hall, St John's Road, Epping, between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on Tuesday, May 31.
People aged between 18 and 30 who live in Epping are invited to attend and express their views about what they believe is good or bad about living in Epping, what pressures they believe affect the area today or may affect it in the future, and what needs to change in the town.
Town Clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "We have already had a great response to our house-to-house delivery of the Epping Together questionnaire but now we are looking to get views from the town's young people to include in our evidence-gathering work for the Neighbourhood Plan.
"It is important that we listen to the voices of everyone in our community."
She added: "This is the first in a number of specialist sessions; we will be holding similar sessions for parents, young families and other groups in our community, so our Neighbourhood Plan correctly reflects the views of as many of our residents as possible."
