hi everyone, sorry i missed today’s live chat. Im currently leading on a Neighborhood Planning project and we were designated by our local Council in Wigan in August. We are currently looking at finding the best way in integrate everyone’s voice and not just the usual 40 people who attend meetings monthly. Im currently working with Year 5 children in Minecraft and this is a great way of getting children interested in Planning but also getting parents and children to discuss ideas.
We are currently at consultation stage, our survey went live 2 weeks ago, we applied for Neighborhood Planning funding and were successful in receiving this funding, plus free Technical Support from AECOM. This support is very welcoming and has proved great and getting everyone to focus on how the plan will look, at the existing community assets we have and if these are utilized fully.
