Early views on the Milton Abbas NDP – 24th August

On behalf of the Parish Council, the Neighbourhood Development Plan Working Party would like to invite residents to an event entitled: “Early views on the Milton Abbas NDP”. 

We recently ran a Vision Questionnaire that asked all residents to tell us about their vision for the development of the village over the coming years. We asked you about your likes and dislikes, about the things you treasure and the improvements you want to see.

At this event on Wednesday 24th August, in the Reading Rooms at 7.30pm, the Working Party will present the feedback we’ve had and suggest the core themes that will be taken forward in the Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Please come and hear what the residents have said – there will also be an opportunity to ask questions about the NDP and put your additional ideas forward.

If you havent returned a Vision Survey, but would like to do so, the final deadline is Friday 5th August.
