Neighbourhood plan on display
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.
