NPDC Long Term Plan Submission

Please, please jump on to the NPDC website and make a submission with regard to the long term plan. There are many impact of changes in the plan - ie pool charges and how we are charging for safer roads to name a few. We only have until the 6th April now! You can submit online at the NPDC website - although the online forms severely limit how we can get the points across - so anyone can submit with a email or word document too. Please see below the pdf of the submission from our Board of Trustees. Many thanks to Sarah Lucas for her time and consideration in writing this document. Sarah also attended the meeting last night at Fern Lodge. Please take the time to read the submission and support our community to have allocated funds to be a; safe, sustainable, fun place to live in.
