Call for help to improve Wellington
11:40am Tuesday 18th September 2012 in News
WHAT are the best things about living in the town? What would you change and why?
These are some of the questions people will be asked when Wellington Town Council draws up a neighbourhood plan to put YOU at the heart of decision making.
The move, part of the Government’s Localism Act, allows the public to trial new rights that gives them powers to bring jobs and homes to the area.
Communities can also help shape the town and determine where developments can go.
Town clerk Greg Dyke said: “With developments planned at Longforth Farm, Cades II and Jurston Farm in the foreseeable future, Wellington is about to get a level of development in the town that exceeds anything ever seen before and if we get it wrong we would live with the consequences forever.
“This is a golden opportunity to shape how we want to see the town develop.”
