Have your say on the future of Whittlesey with workshops to talk about how to shape the town and a promise that no idea is a bad one.

Whittlesey Town Council has published its neighbourhood plan survey results and want to hear the views of residents.

A spokesman said the survey has given: “Very interesting feedback where residents responded enthusiastically to give their views across a wide range of issues, including housing, transport, community, leisure, environment and heritage.”

“Neighbourhood planning gives local communities the chance to shape potential development of all types within their area.

“The most important part of the process is to engage with residents.

You may also want to watch:

“The meetings are not just passive listening, rather engaging with others, speakers and local councillors – there is no such thing as a bad idea or silly question.

“Understanding what may be possible and making others aware of your concerns and desires could be a very productive meeting.
