Billingshurst Show - 25 June 2017
Parish Clerk Greg Burt and members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee had a stand at the Billingshurst Show, where residents were asked their views on our draft Vision & Objectives, which will be sent to all residents early autumn.
Housing Needs Assessment
In 2017, Billingshurst Parish Council asked AECOM to carry out a Housing Needs Assessment.
Consultation on the Draft Vision & Objectives - Autumn 2017
Four lucky winners of £25 M&S Vouchers marked the completion of the latest stage in the process to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Billingshurst. 130 responses were received to a consultation on the draft Vision & Objectives which were sent to every household in the parish, and every entry automatically went into a prize draw; thank you to all who responded. The results are now being evaluated, prior to the next stage which will see a series of workshops which should start to firm up ideas that could turn villagers' aspirations into reality.
Billingshurst Neighbourhood Plan - Workshops
Work on the Neighbourhood Plan has been continuing throughout the winter months. Two workshops have been held to which stakeholders, community groups, potential developers and those who responded to the recent Vision & Objectives consultation were invited. At these events, attendees were asked to start to put flesh on the bones of the Vision & Objectives, in terms of identifying Opportunities, Threats and Considerations.
Next Working Party Meeting
The next meeting of the Neighbourhood Plan Working Party will be held at the Billingshurst Centre, Roman Way, Billingshurst on Thursday 10 July 2019 at 6.30pm.
