May Meeting - Presentation from our consultant

Our meeting this month was a lovely in-person gathering in the cosy atmosphere of the Totton and Eling Men's Shed. Amongst the woodworking projects and items stored to be repaired we pulled up our chairs and listened to our independent consultant Richard Lewis tell us all about his work on our Neighbourhood Plan so far, and everything he has researched and discovered.

The biggest thing that Richard wanted to convey is that a Neighbourhood Plan document is a land-use document and should be a positive force for developments that we want in our town. We went into a lot of detail, examples and maps during the meeting. If you'd like to read the full meeting transcript you can download and read that here.

Next Stages

Our next stages are to do another engagement event soon, work on drafting our policies over June and August, and doing a 6 week public consultation in the Autumn. After that we will finalise our plans and submit to NFDC. We are aware that Neighbourhood Plan referendums are usually held alongside other elections, and we have council elections in May 2023 which are achievable for us to aim for.

Presentation at Full Council Meeting

A shorter version of this presentation and updates is going to be given at the Totton And Eling Full Council Meeting on Wednesday 25th May to ensure that all councillors are up to date on our work and upcoming stages. A version of the presentation given at the council will be available on this website shortly.
