The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

A Steering Group has been formed to help lead on the day to day management of The Blackwater & Hawley Neighbourhood Plan. The Steering Group aims to work with the community to develop the plan from start to finish through the various stages which will take approximately 12 – 18 months.

As well as managing the production of the Neighbourhood Plan, a key part of the Steering Group’s responsibility is to ensure that the greatest possible consultation takes place with the community, so that the final plan is genuinely shaped by local residents and represents their views. It is doing this by arranging community events, consultations and surveys and, of course, through this website.

The Steering Group will also need to iron out any conflict between different views, and to make sure that our plan is realistic and robust.
