As soon as I’d finished the Community Plan document at the end of March, my thoughts and energy turned to my garden and my conservatory. While my focus has (at least some of the time…) been elsewhere, over the last few months, the Plan has been quietly informing some small actions and seeding future possibilities.
The Plan really is getting close to completion now. Sections 4 and 5 in first draft form are now available, and the entirety of the earlier part is now in its penultimate form – a final draft (also on this site), which you are invited to comment on, and will be getting its last revision in March once I’ve heard from as many people as possible.
Here I am, in late January, drafting the final sections of the Community Plan. After two years of consultation and research, talking to people all over Alston Moor (some with the help of volunteer members of the Alston Moor Partnership) in groups and individually, the end is finally in sight!
We had a really successful meeting on 9 October at Garrigill Village Hall to discuss the Introduction and Section 1 of the Community Plan. About 30 people came along, and discussed the various ‘bits’ in groups of four to six. This part of the Plan has now been revised from the comments recorded there and some others received by e-mail.
