Effective community engagement and a robust evidence base are the pillars on which a good NP will be built – (www.locality.org.uk)
Kingston Neighbourhood Plan is a Community Plan and derives its objectives, actions and authority from the Community.
Consequently the Community need to be kept informed of progress and given every opportunity to be involved and tell the Task Group what they want. This website is part of that Communication Process.
The Task Group will:
- Engage with the community at all stages in the process of producing Kingston’s Neighbourhood Development Plan .
- Engage with the community early on to raise awareness and gather information and initial views on broad issues.
- Consult throughout the process so that people can suggest improvements and feedback on earlier suggestions.
- Consult on the final draft of the Neighbourhood Development Plan .
