Neigh­bour­hood plan on dis­play

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

THE team be­hind Bolling­ton’s Neigh­bour­hood Plan will present the pro­pos­als at an up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion.

Bolling­ton Neigh­bour­hood Plan aims to act as a guide for how the town should de­velop while pro­tect­ing its her­itage and char­ac­ter­is­tics.

The plan is be­ing de­vel­oped by a group of vol­un­teers and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Bolling­ton Town Coun­cil.

They are at the stage of de­vel­op­ing ‘draft poli­cies’ which will form the ba­sis of the fi­nal plan af­ter con­sul­ta­tion with the com­mu­nity, based on a ques­tion­naire and pub­lic meet­ings.

The draft poli­cies will be pre­sented for in­for­ma­tion and con­sul­ta­tion at a joint ex­hi­bi­tion with the Univer­sity of Manch­ester School of Ar­chi­tec­ture to be held at Bolling­ton Arts Cen­tre from May 21 to 27.

Stu­dents from the School of Ar­chi­tec­ture have been work­ing with the neigh­bour­hood plan team on projects con­cerned with Bolling­ton through­out the aca­demic year.

They will present their ideas and schemes for how the fu­ture might look in Bolling­ton at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Coun Amanda Stott, who is on the neigh­bour­hood plan steer­ing group, said: “The ex­hi­bi­tion is an op­por­tu­nity for us to get feed­back on the early stages of the plan.

“We want to know where peo­ple think there should be de­vel­op­ment and what should be pro­tected.

“It’s im­por­tant peo­ple get in­volved in the con­sul­ta­tion.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion opens at Bolling­ton Arts Cen­tre on Satur­day, May 21 at 7pm and will run daily un­til Fri­day, May 27 when there will be a cof­fee morn­ing from 10am to mid­day with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Neigh­bour­hood Plan and School of Ar­chi­tec­ture.
