Over the last year, organisations and representatives from county, district and town and parish councils have been working together to devise a development plan for the local council sector (the first tier of local government). This plan is the first of its kind in Cambridgeshire and acts as a starting point for the sharing of ideas, ambitions and aspirations for Cambridgeshire’s local council sector.
A copy of the draft Cambridgeshire Local Council Development Plan 2017 – 2021 is attached/can be downloaded here.
We now wish to consult with councillors, clerks and others on how well the plan and the actions identified will help support the development of the sector over the next 5 years. All comments will be gratefully received and will be used to inform a final version of the plan. Please visit http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/planconsultation/ to access a feedback form to submit your comments to us by Friday 10th November.
The Development Plan will be launched at the Cambridgeshire Parish Council Conference on Friday 17 November 2017. If you wish to attend the conference and have not yet booked, you can register at: http://bit.ly/2x339VL
We would be grateful if clerks can circulate this email to all councillors in their parish so they might give their views too.
On behalf of the Stakeholder Group, we look forward to receiving your views and hope to see you at the Conference in November.
