Hi, I’m David Baxter and we have set up a Neighbourhood Forum for Abram Ward, a ward within Wigan Borough. Having set up the Forum and chosen our designated area, we completed the 6 week public consultation in July 2015 and were approved by the Wigan Council cabinet to proceed in August 2016. We have commenced with further consultation via a survey, plus have designed a Minecraft curriculum in partnership with local schools to teach Year 5 primary school students in Neighbourhood Planning.
We have received Technical support via AECOM and have looked at examples from other Plans from other parts of the country to see if our aims for the Plan are also taking place across the country.
