Glastonbury Town Council has launched a new website to promote engagement with our residents, retailers, and business owners on how our town will continue to develop and grow.
The website is part of the community engagement strategy developed by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee; Glastonbury’s new Neighbourhood Planning Officer, Gerard Tucker explains: “Put simply, the Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development of Glastonbury; Glastonbury Town Council and in particular the Neighbourhood Planning Steering Group is expected to provide a robust and thorough consultation exercise. Yet there is one missing ingredient – YOU! We really do need your help, so please get involved when asked for your thoughts either at consultation events or questionnaires.
“Our ambition is to research the plan during the remainder of 2016, assess the responses and engage again with residents in early 2017, before writing the plan for presentation to Mendip District Council and an independent examiner. If all goes well, we hope to provide an opportunity for residents to vote at a referendum in early 2018.”
