Are you interested in preserving the look and feel of Ruddington as a village? The Ruddington Neighbourhood Plan Project team (RNP) are calling for volunteer residents to join them for the next stage of the RNP: the Design Guide.
The Design Guide is being developed as part of the Neighbourhood Plan, but can also be used as a standalone document and carries weight in local decision-making relating to development proposals.
The first stage of Design Guide creation is carrying out what are known as “Walkovers”. These involve Project Team members, consultants and members of the public walking around key areas of the village, discussing and identifying key features of the villagescape and landscape that contribute to Ruddington’s character.
The Village Walks will take place in the early evening over two dates, as listed below. One will focus on small scale developments and the other on large scale developments:
- Tuesday 20th August at 6.30pm – Small Scale Development Walk
- Thursday 22nd August at 6.30pm – Large Scale Development Walk
Both walks will start at St Peter’s Rooms, where welcome refreshments will be served, and will finish at approximately 8.30pm. Please note there’ll be a fair amount of walking required, although this will be at a slow place with plenty of stops.
Anyone living in Ruddington is welcome to register their interest in joining the walks, and families are welcome to bring children along. No experience or specific knowledge is required. Places will be granted on a first come, first serves basis, so don’t delay! Please make sure you’re available on the given dates and times before registering.
To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact details, the ward you live in and which walk you’d prefer to join. Registration closes on Wednesday 14th August.
