Press Release : Neighbourhood Development Plan Design Forum – Day 3

On the 28th November the Bramshott and Liphook Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Steering Group, along with the appointed independent NDP consultant, Feria Urbanism, will be holding the third day of the Design Forum at the Millennium Centre. This follows on from a highly successful Day 1 & 2 where over 200 residents and businesses got involved to explore the ideas and ambitions of those who live and work in the Parish.

The initial two days culminated with Feria Urbanism and the NDP Steering Group presenting the ‘story so far’. The presentation highlighted the unique challenges that the Parish faces and additional work required to seek a holistic solution which the community can reach a consensus on.

The format for the third day will be a more focused “technical workshop” based on the insights, issues and outcomes from the first two days. As a result of the questions and challenges identified, additional research has been undertaken. This new information will be used to inform key decisions regarding the framework and focus of the Plan.  This is an important milestone as we move forward into wider engagement with the Parish in the next stage of the process.

The Steering Group would encourage everyone who was involved in the first two days of the Design Forum to come along for the duration of the third day on 28th November. This will be key to ensuring we generate and develop a constructive and efficient debate needed be able to progress the NDP.

The Steering Group also welcomes new participants – however, please note it will be most beneficial that anyone who wishes to participate has fully reviewed the progress and findings from the first two days, so they are informed about the issues and challenges to date.

Following this planned event, the Steering Group is already beginning to look at wider community engagement including additional events and feedback sessions, options for providing online input and feedback, and the ability to register for email updates and details of future events.
