Ellesmere community toolkit event

Date: 1 Mar, 2011

Community Toolkit Event, Lakelands School Tuesday 1st March 2011 Your chance to influence planning policy if you live or work in and around the town This is your chance to get involved and tell us what it is like to live or work in your area and what would help your community to develop now and in the future. Up to 30 people are needed to sign up on a first come first served basis to a one-off ‘community toolkit event’ here in Ellesmere, being organised by Shropshire Council. This is so local people can help make sure the Council has the best quality information possible about where you live, to help make long term decisions about development and needs for services. The Council is looking for a range of people across the parish and ideally therefore a balance of views, from young people and parents with children right through to older retired people , and will be using the town plan and other information as the basis for group discussions. The Council is keen to hear from people who may not have been involved in anything before but would be able to give up an evening on this occasion, as well as from people already active in the community who want to share their views. Ellesmere Town Council are also involved in the event. Local people will also be asked to share with their local councillor, Cllr Ann Hartley, any ideas that could help to revitalise the market town, using investment available through the Shropshire Council Market Towns Revitalisation Programme. The community toolkit event will include teas and coffees from 6.30pm, and a midpoint break for light refresements. It will be held at Lakelands School in Ellesmere, on the evening of Tuesday 1st March 2011, and will start at 7.00pm. The aim is to conclude by 9.45pm. If you want to take part and give your views then please volunteer. The event requires pre registration, and people will then be sent material ahead of the event. Organisers are encouraging people to get their names in by Tuesday 22nd February 2011. Please contact Lois Dale at Shropshire Council (01743 255667) or lois.dale@shropshire.gov.uk
