The Steering Group is pleased to report that it has now secured grant funding towards some of the project costs of our Neighbourhood Development Plan from the Community Rights Programme, funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government. This adds to the funding and support that Standon Parish Council has already committed to the project.
Grant funds will pay for a questionnaire and housing needs survey that we hope to send out to households in the neighbouhood area over the summer, together with some other project costs.
We are hoping that the comments and feedback that we receive from you at our open day this Saturday,16 May 2015 will help inform this questionnaire as we begin to develop the vision and the objectives that will form the bedrock of our Neighbourhood Development Plan.
We hope to see as many people as we can on Saturday at the Standon & Puckeridge Community Centre (Williams-Davies Hall), from 10am to 4pm. If you are interested in the future of Standon Parish it is really important that you come and see us.
