event in the Village Hall
29 January 10.00 - 16.00
Everyone from the parish is invited
to come along and help create a picture of how life is in the parish now and to
begin to identify key issues that need to be addressed in the future.
questions to be addressed include: how to improve the health and well being of
parishioners? How to safeguard the environment? And how to increase the prosperity
and sustainability of local businesses?
The event will be informal so people are free to drop
in for two minutes or two hours to see displays and information about the village as it is today". A wide range of organisations and
agencies will be in attendance and providing information including the local Primary
Care Trust, Heritage Coast team, Environment Agency and many more.
It is all part of a process that will
culminate in a Burton Bradstock Parish Plan that it is hoped will be adopted by
the West Dorset District Council and help guide future development and resource
allocation. A questionnaire has already been circulated via the BVN to gauge what
people see as the key issues and the event will provide a further opportunity
to register views and opinions about what is important to address now if the future
of the village is going to be good for people, the environment and local prosperity.
Ripley, Parish Councillor and chair of the working group is organising the day.
