The NP Committee met on 29th Sept to go through an update of the work that is being carried out regarding the Sustainability Appraisal, as well as the Vision and Objectives for the Slaugham Neighbourhood Plan. It is important that the views of the Parish lead this and so careful work has been done to ensure that the comments that were collected at the start of the previous plan have been used as the basis of the documents.
A discussion took place regarding the exhibitions which took place on 5th and 6th Sept run by The Hyde regarding a proposal they brought forward to increase the size of recreation land by using land at Warren Cottage Field in Handcross. Both dates were attended by SPC Councillors to listen to the comments. Overall it was commented that there seemed to be a lack of ‘younger’ people giving their views.
As mentioned previously, In order to improve communication, there is now a link to the Neighbourhood Plan information from the Slaugham Parish Council website – so take a look at www.slaughampc.co.uk and follow the link.
The dates for the next 2 meetings, which are held at The Pavillion, Handcross at 7:30pm are 3rd November and 1st December. Members of the public are always welcome to attend.
