Liskeard residents can find out all about Liskeard’s Neighbourhood Plan – and have their say on how it should develop – at an event to take place next week.
The town council’s Neighbourhood Planning Team will be in the Long Room of the Public Hall on Thursday, May 29, between 10.30am-8pm.
Residents can find out what a Neighbourhood Plan is for, put forward their own ideas, and sign up as a volunteer, said a spokesperson for the team.
Neighbourhood Plans cover issues like future housing, employment and leisure facilities. It is important that as many people as possible who live and work in the town are involved, says the town council. ‘This is the chance for the whole community to get on board and decide the best way forward with planning the use of land and buildings in and around the town,’ the spokesperson continued.
Outgoing mayor Sue Pike said: ‘We need your views, your local knowledge and your expertise to steer us through this first phase of our planning journey for the Liskeard of the future. ‘Once a Neighbourhood Plan has been passed in a referendum, it cannot be overturned. It is important that people have their say now at the beginning of the planning process.
