A Plan for Woolpit

News in 2017
A lot has happened since Woolpit Neighbourhood Plan was launched in February 2016, with strong public support. Volunteers made initial contacts throughout the community during February, and the Steering Group was formed in March. We agreed a consultation strategy, built around our pop-up stand, which appeared at many venues throughout the parish from May onwards, when Mid Suffolk District Council approved the Plan. By October key issues had been identified - traffic, housing etc, followed in November with an exhibition and a presentation to report progress and outline plans for the next stage. By December work was beginning on the community questionnaire, which would lead to drafting the plan itself.
