As many people in the parish are aware, there has been much recent discussion about the possibility of future development in Milton Abbas. This has spurred on the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Group to gather the community’s collective view on the best way forward.
We will be holding an open meeting on 7:30pm Monday 23rd in St James’s Church to which anyone in the parish is invited to discuss the issues involved and a timetable for progressing our parish’s Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Susan & Rowan Woodhouse, on behalf of the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Group
