Hailsham Town Council invites residents to attend a public drop-in session to find out more about the Hailsham Neighbourhood Plan and its progress, which takes place at the former Wizard Stores retail unit inside the Quintin’s Centre on Friday 19th January, from 1pm to 4pm.
The event, which is a follow-up to the public consultation which took place at the Hailsham Civic Community Hall in November allowing people who missed it to find out more about the pre-submission Draft Plan. The event is one of various public feedback exercises being undertaken by the Neighbourhood Planning Committee during the current public consultation period, which ends on Friday 26th January.
“Residents are encouraged to attend the event and ask any questions they may have relating to the Draft Neighbourhood Plan,” said Councillor Glenn Moore, chairman of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee.
“We have already received lots of feedback from residents in terms of important infrastructure requirements and issues to support future housing growth in Hailsham and the Neighbourhood Plan will be progressing to the next stage in its public consultation mandate – your views on the draft plan.”
“The opinions and findings of everyone who takes part in our consultations will be put into the mix and I’d encourage residents to come along to the next drop-in event – conveniently located in the town centre – and help influence the way forward for the Plan.”
A lot has happened since the launch of the Neighbourhood Planning Committee in 2015 including a series of public consultation and engagement events, which have enabled residents and local businesses to have their say on the future of Hailsham and the surrounding area in terms of local environment and sustainability, design, traffic and transport, economy, retail and services.
