It was originally intended that the Community Led Plan would be launched with consultation events in July 2017.  However matters have been delayed for a number of reasons not least of which was the extended period of “purdah” relating to the County and General elections which severely restricted our ability progress matters , issue publicity and engage the public.  We have therefore postponed the launch events until September.  This will give a longer lead time to publicise the events so we can have a meaningful consultation and ensure as many people as possible are able to get involved.
