The first meeting of a group of volunteers who want to compile a ‘Ruddington Village Plan’ took place in November and have identified subjects such as the environment, health, young people, planning (and more) to be tackled – this is not a small project and will take time to complete.
We will be looking for people to join sub-committees and help compile questions for the community consultation and to assist with supporting events which we hope to hold in the village in the future. The subsequent results of the questionnaires will enable a report or ‘Village Plan’ to be produced which can be used to support grant applications, planning proposals (and objections) and help organisations like the Parish, Borough and County Councils to clearly identify what our community wants – and doesn’t want. This project is community led and we need you to get involved.
For now, we need people to join our sub-committees. You may have a special interest in health issues or highways issues, or you may work with children or in the leisure industry – or you may just feel that you’d like to contribute and get involved with this important project for our village.
Initially, our topics are: Business & Commerce, Environment, Health & Welfare, Housing & Planning, Leisure, Transport & Highways, Young & Old People and finally, Heritage and Tourism, although this list has not yet been finalised.
We anticipate that there will be evening meetings about once a month – so it can take up as little or as much of your time as you wish. If you would like to help with this project or want to know more, please get in touch. Our email address is:
