Just a reminder about the public meeting on Wednesday 12th October in Little Paxton Village Hall at 7.30pm about starting a Community Led Plan. All welcome.
The Public meeting is organised by Little Paxton Parish Council.
Little Paxton Parish Council are inviting residents to a public meeting in the village hall on Wednesday 12th October at 7.30pm with the aim of forming a steering group to establish a Community Led Plan.
The key to a successful Community Led Plan is consulting with the community with a detailed questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire are used to identify what actions are needed to achieve the community needs.
Cllr Liz Timms said, 'Community Led Plan is the new name for Parish Plans. The existing Parish Plan was prepared in 2006 and is now out of date. Little Paxton has changed and expanded so much since the last plan especially with the building of two major housing developments. A new vision for the community is now needed.'
The Parish Council is considering installing a Petanque court (French boule) on the QEII Playing Field.

The Council invites and welcomes residents' comments on this project. Please contact the Clerk by Tel 01480 470193 ,email firstname.lastname@example.org ,sent a message via social media
