The first step on the consultation process was to hold an event for Barrowden and Wakerley residents on the 30th September 2015 & 3rdOctober 2015. The events were publicised via the Village email and also through a flyer to every household.
This event was announced using a leaflet to every household and a follow up invite using the village email. Nine topics were put forward on storyboards
- Land Use and Development
- Green Spaces
- Conservation and Character
- Health and Welfare
- Rural Economy
- Community Assets
- Roads and Transport
Residents were asked to express their views using yellow post it notes. After the sessions the resident’s responses, captured on post it notes, were reviewed and the themes from those that were appropriate to a Neighbourhood Plan were included in an Outcomes Document.
Other issues relating to Community Aspirations were advised to the Barrowden Parish Council for their consideration and further action as appropriate.
