Next Steering Group Meeting

When required

Posted 19th November 2008

The Parish Plan enters its final stages. There will be an open meeting January 14th 2009 starting at 7:30pm. This meeting will bring to you the villagers of Wistow the draft Parish Plan Document. A consultation period will take place where you have chance to comment on the final document before it goes to print.

Also the meeting will start and put all the items identified in the questionnaire into practice, but that will only happen if you support the plans with names  in numbers. Clearly if keep fit only gets one name then it won’t happen. You get, what you want to support, its as simple as that.

Support the meeting and make the Parish Plan work for you and the community
