Queen’s Park Community Council has just completed its draft Neighbourhood Plan. We have been developing this plan since the council was set up in 2014 and it is now ready for you, Queen’s Park residents, to make comments and suggest changes to it before it is put to the vote.
A Neighbourhood Plan gives local people a role in making decisions about how they would like their area developed: the facilities they need, housing, high streets and workspaces, the environment, roads and transport. It also means that, if building is done in Queen’s Park, we can claim funds from a fund called The Community Infrastructure Levy, which can be used, as we choose, on improvements here in Queen's Park.
So now it's time to tell us what you think! Read the summary and / or full document below and get in touch. Your feedback will be gathered and responded to, and we will make changes to the plan if appropriate. Please send your comments on the plan to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 November 2017 or attend one of our two open meetings:
Wednesday 1 November 1-4pm, Beethoven Centre, Third Avenue.
Monday 13 November 6-8pm, Avenues Youth Club, Third Avenue.
