A Community Led Parish Plan sets out how the community would like the parish to change over the next ten years a statement of what makes the area special and a series of actions to conserve and enhance parish life. It can include anything that you decide should be in it. From Sires Hill to Shillingford Hill, from Mackney to Brightwell, Rush Court to Sotwell; everyone from each part of the parish will have the opportunity to have their say. If there is anything about the area that really bugs you tell us, or maybe there are things about living round here that you love and would like to see more of, or have some new ideas for community events. The important thing is that you let us know so we can include your views in the Plan.
Local people are putting together our Parish Plan - everyone who is helping is a volunteer. You may have already seen us popping up at a local event asking you to give us your ideas. At the moment we just want to know what you like and dislike about parish life and maybe anything that you think would improve things. Once we have gathered these views we will need to sit down and write a detailed questionnaire based on your ideas. We expect to have this questionnaire ready in September. At the moment, you can talk to us in a number of ways
- at one of the parish events we attend for example, wherever you see the Well of Wishes
- or through our website (if you have internet access visit http://www.brightwellcumsotwell.co.uk/ and follow the links)
- or you may want to join one of the working groups that have been formed these are looking at different issues in more detail such as: housing, the environment, amenities, community, business, young people, traffic & transport and crime. Simply contact me and I can pass you onto the right person.
To try and reach everyone in the parish, one of the Parish Plan volunteers will be knocking on your door to ask you a few simple questions. We will wait until it gets a bit lighter - so come March please do expect us and please do talk to the volunteers when they call it will not take long. Jason Debney, Parish Plan Committee
