Consultations and Community Engagement
An essential part of the Neighbourhood Plan process is to engage with as many residents of all age groups as possible and a more detailed Questionnaire will be distributed later to every house in the village in early April. Once that has been delivered there will be a series of consultation events held throughout the village when, In addition to the display material, there will be an opportunity to talk to members of the Steering Group and for YOU to ask questions and for YOU tell us what you think about the village and the Plan. What are your likes and dislikes. What changes you would like to see. What are your concerns about the future in Boston Spa etc etc
Details of when and where these events are to be held will be shown here in due course and will also be advertised on the village notice boards and in the local press.
