FENLANDER: Chance to comment on council’s “big vision”

RESIDENTS are being given the chance to comment on Fenland District Council’s “Big Vision” for Fenland at a series of face-to-face events being held across the district over the next two weeks.

Council officers will be on hand to receive people’s comments and answer questions at the Fenland @ your service shops in Whittlesey (August 16), Wisbech (August 18) and March (August 24); and at Chatteris library (August 26). They will be in each place from 4-7pm.

Another series of similar sessions will be held in September.

The “Big Vision” is set out in the “Fenland Communities Development Plan – Core Strategy”, published two weeks ago. It contains wide-ranging proposals for the growth and regeneration of Fenland over the next 20 years.
