The Steering Group met in April to hear from our consultants regarding non-designated heritage assets, green spaces, and site allocations. These are all things the community needs to understand in order to build the best Neighbourhood Plan for Hingham. They also covered a round up of the community and business engagement so far.
The Hingham Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has commenced the final aspect of Stage One: detailed public engagement. The purpose of this exercise is to obtain views and ideas from the community as a whole. This process has started with members of the Steering Group approaching various community groups in the Parish and their assistance and co-operation is greatly appreciated.
Held on Monday 21 February 2022 at 7.45pm in the Lincoln Hall. After introductions and declarations of interest, people were elected to key roles (chair, secretary etc.) The whole process was outlined, followed by next steps.
