Bishop’s Waltham Development Plan Update – October 2014
Following extensive community consultation the Parish Council approved the Bishop’s Waltham Development Plan earlier this year. It has been incorporated into the Winchester City Council Local Plan Part 2 which is now due for public consultation.
Improving Community Communications
A Street Agent in each area and locality of Bishop’s Waltham is required to help regularly update and inform their neighbours of ‘what is happening’ in their town. One or two Development volunteers could share the task of delivering communications in their street, such as the Parish Council quarterly news letter, and other informative leaflets regarding local events.
This activity would involve approximately half hour of the volunteers time per quarter, at their own pace and convenience. When an Agent for a street / area is identified, these communications will then be delivered separate from the postal service and therefore will not be confused with ‘junk mail’. No one in our community will be disadvantaged by not being informed of community events.
If you believe that communication is a valuable asset to our community, and you enjoy walking and helping your neighbours, please consider becoming a Street/Area Agent for your locality.
