The Campaign to Protect Rural England
West Lancashire District Group has been in existence for the last two decades. “We pride ourselves on having made a difference.
“CPRE West Lancashire District Group is hosting an introductory workshop on Neighbourhood Planning on Wednesday 22nd May, 7.30pm, in Ormskirk. The evening is free to attend with a retiring collection towards costs, but booking is essential.
“Government legislation encourages local groups and Parishes to produce development plans, called Neighbourhood Plans, that have legal status in helping to guide where and in what form development takes place.
“They give residents an opportunity to work with the Borough to direct the detail of how the Local Plan affects very local areas. Burscough are currently nearing the end of producing a Neighbourhood Plan. However, while other parts of the country have many hundreds in place there are very few throughout Lancashire.
“To this end, CPRE is offering an introductory workshop on Neighbourhood Planning on Wednesday 22nd May at 7.30 pm in Ormskirk School, Wigan Road, Ormskirk. L39 2AT.
“It will be led by Jackie Copley MRTPI, MA, BA (Hons) PgCert., Planning Manager for CPRE Lancashire. We wish to invite anyone and everyone to attend.
