Colne Town Council’s Formal Consultation on its Draft Neighbourhood Plan is now in full swing, with the first Zoom meeting on the Plan held on Monday 2nd November.

“We have arranged lots of Zoom meetings on different topics”, explained Working Group, Chairman, Cllr Sarah Cockburn-Price, “and on a range of different times and days. We ask you to let us know you are joining the Zoom meeting 24 hours in advance and we will send you a link. It is very simple, all you have to do is press the link to launch the meeting, whether you are on your ‘phone, on a tablet or on your PC.”

Town Council Chairman, Cllr Mary Thomas, said: “This draft Neighbourhood Plan is very important for the future of our town. We want as many people and businesses as possible to engage with it and let us know what they think. The Zoom sessions are the perfect way to virtually meet the team behind the Plan, which has been years in the making, and to ask questions about the policies and the evidence presented.”

The second Zoom session will focus on the list of Non-Designated Heritage Assets that accompanies the draft Plan and the Heritage policies that are contained within it. This online meeting is scheduled for Saturday 7th November at 2pm. Please e-mail: [email protected] to register to join this session by 2pm on Friday 6th November.

Given the unexpected imposition of the month long National Lockdown, which has curtailed the planned physical meetings in the Town Hall, the Working Group is considering extending the duration of the Formal Consultation of this crucial document. If this document is adopted it will guide the development of Colne for the next decade and beyond.
