There are a number of ways you can contribute to our Neighbourhood Development Plan ranging from dipping in occasionally, offering opinion at one of the consultation events, to playing a central role with the Steering Group or one of the Topic Groups.

Opportunities within the Steering Group
Fancy getting involved in leading the process - arranging events, writing the plan, and helping to manage the project? Then the Steering Group may be for you.  Have a look at our Steering Group page and see if this is of interest to you.

If you would like to get involved you can complete an application form, which you can download here and return to volunteer@spndp.org.   We ask that prospective members attend to observe a Steering Group meeting, to make sure that they understand what is involved and that they do actually wish to join,  before then applying formally at the following meeting.  

Research opportunities
The Steering Group is looking for people to get involved in researching specific areas of interest in our Topic Groups.  Topic Group leaders form a central core of the group and will be arranging specific targeted consultation, and we also hope to build up a wider network of volunteer researchers for intermittent discussions and assistance on specific topics.  If you are interested in contributing to reasearch, but do not want to commit to joining the Steeting Group then there are opportuninites for you to get involved with our research on a project basis.

For more information on the Topic Groups visit the Steering Group page

If you are interested in research opportunities, email us at volunteer@spndp.org and the relevant topic group leader will get in touch with you.  Alternatively, come along to a Steering Group meeting.
