Have a say in the future of Kirdford

KIRDFORD residents are being asked to help plan for the future of their neighbourhood.

Two drop-in sessions are being held at the church of St John the Baptist in Glasshouse Lane on Monday, October 22, and Wednesday, October 24, from 7pm–9pm for people to make recommendations for their Neighbourhood Plan.

The sessions form part of a week of design workshops starting on October 22, which will be delivered by the Prince’s Foundation for Building in partnership with the Kirdford Parish Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.

Both the organisations are attempting to get a clear view from the wider community on the issues and opportunities which need to be addressed by the plan, and how it can best develop the village for the future.

The first of the sessions will be looking for feedback from residents to input directly into the workshops the next day.

The second session will then inform members of the community about the outcomes from the workshops.

A spokesman for the Prince’s Foundation said it was hoping to attract as many members of the local community as possible to share their views, thoughts and ideas on the future of Kirdford.

Communities throughout the country are preparing Neighbourhood Plans, following their introduction in the 2010 Localism Bill.
