Residents urged to have say on village plan for next 20 years
RESIDENTS are being urged to help share Poynton’s future for the next 20 years.
Poynton’s Neighbourhood Plan will set out development and facilities in the village.
Once agreed, it will provide a legally binding document which will guide the scale and nature of development in Poynton for years to come.
Work on the plan is being led by Poynton Town Council, supported by a team of volunteers.
A launch event at the Civic Hall was visited by 100 residents, councillors, volunteers and MP David Rutley.
He said: “It was good to see so many residents take the trouble to attend this Neighbourhood Plan launch, and I would like to thank the volunteer team for making it possible.
“The Plan is vitally important for the future shape of the village, and I would encourage residents in Poynton to take the opportunity to get involved and have their say by completing a Neighbourhood Plan survey. This will be available at the end of January.”
Neighbourhood Plan project co-ordinator Sarah-Jane Gilmore said: “We were really impressed by the high turnout and the level of interest and enthusiasm.”
There will be a series of drop-in sessions at the Civic Hall to view the plans on February 7, 14 and 21, between 10am and 12pm.
You can complete the Neighbourhood Plan survey online at www. poyntonnp.org.uk, or return completed paper copies to the Civic Hall by February 27.
Spare copies can be obtained from there and the library. To find out more about the Poynton Neighbourhood Plan, visit the website or contact Town Clerk, Malcolm Adams, on 01625 872238.
