North Weald Bassett Neighbourhood Plan website launched
The North Weald Bassett Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has launched its long-awaited website - http://northwealdbassettplan.org/
For updates on the Neighbourhood Plan follow @NWBNP on Twitter, 'like' the Facebook page Northwealdbassettplan and register to receive the media releases by email. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and state NWBNP.
Not only will the website provide visitors with the opportunity to find out more about
Neighbourhood Planning, but regular updates will be posted providing information on important issues that will affect how the future of North Weald, Thornwood and Hastingwood will develop.
For the past year the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has been trying to raise awareness about the importance of planning at a local level, trying to encourage local people to get involved.
Many people will have seen the colourful logo dotted around the Parish or posted through doors.
Residents may have attended an event, or spoken to someone at one of the pop-up stands in North Weald High Road.
At times this has been difficult to explain to residents, as many simply do not want any new housing as this could cause the area in which they live to change - in some areas quite significantly.
This feeling is understandable however change is coming whether we like it or not!
Neighbourhood Planning is about communities doing the best they can to ensure that what comes our way is right for local people, right for local businesses, and right for the community as a whole.
Neighbourhood Planning can shape what future development looks like, steer how it is designed, protect valued local green spaces, as well as setting out policies for future development.
