I went to the Neighbourhood Plan Launch exhibition at the Pavilion. The Draft Plan was displayed on boards round the room and members of the NP Steering Group were there to explain its contents. Some pages showing maps and plans were placed on tables for easy viewing and copies of the draft Plan were also on hand. A large Map of the area would have been useful.

The Consultation document is an impressive glossy brochure, containing some very good photo's of Elstead scenes and a few from other places. The text font is small and the lines tightly spaced.

The content is comprehensive and covers a lot of detail, some of it technical facts required as evidence for the formal approval process, some more forward looking in terms of possible projects for the future as funding from house building becomes available.

If you want to look at the document online you will find it easier if you have access to a wide screen, as the text on many of the pages is in three columns and only two will fit onto an older square screen. Like me some of you will probably need reading glasses! Cool

A document designed for online reading with an index linked to the various sections and key items would be useful.

The Neighbourhood Plan set up process is not over yet and the current 8 week consultation gives everybody who lives or works in the Plan area (including Weyburn) the chance to suggest improvements before the Plan is submitted to Waverley later this year.
