Working Groups – We need you!

Knutsford Town Council needs you! The Knutsford Neighbourhood Plan committee have set out a clear structure to move the production of a Neighbourhood Plan forward. The plan will cover 8 key themes:

  • Heritage
  • Town Centre & Shopping
  • Housing
  • Environment and Open Space
  • Sports & Leisure
  • Health
  • Getting Around
  • Employment
  • Education & Community

Each working group will elect its own chairman and a representative to sit on the Neighbourhood Plan Committee and be responsible for developing that section of the plan. The Town Council is looking for volunteers to join the working groups.

“We are looking for people both with expertise and enthusiasm” said Town Clerk, Adam Keppel-Garner.

“Whether you have skills in a particular area, a keen interest or ideas to shape the future – we want to hear from you”

The first meeting of the working groups will agree a series of sub-themes to be further developed in the Neighbourhood Plan. The meetings will be co-ordinated by a link councillor from the committee and include representatives of key organisations – the ‘Theme Representatives’.

The commitment will vary across the working groups but will primarily involve attending working group meetings with some members needing to undertake research, canvas opinion, co-ordinate engagement events and similar activities.

“It is all about planning for the future of Knutsford and giving Knutsfordians a say in how our town develops” Adam added.

If you would like to join a working group or find out more about what is involved contact the Town Clerk on townclerk@knutsfordtowncouncil.gov.uk
