Over the last few years your Parish Council has worked hard to “get it right” for the community.?
In 2013 the Council held intensive meetings to discuss the main principles of our Council – including the Culture; Principles, Values and Integrity; Meeting Conduct; Communication; Action and Quality oriented (driven for results); Involved Enthusiasm and Responsibilities. All towards ensuring we were Community Driven.
Responding to the Wardle Airport development planning application was a great deal of work involving the wider community and a thorough response was submitted – the plans were however approved as expected – but the Village will get a Puffin crossing.
Then the Parish Plan was undertaken in the correct agreed manner and the outcomes thus far are the completion of the community defined Alpraham Road Safety Improvement Plan and the request we made of The Wellcome Trust for The Village Green Project. The latter supported by over 73% of Alpraham Residents who responded. There is more to come.
The Village Green Project preparation involved a great deal of community involvement with written communication, exhibitions, meetings, etc. and it provides our Village and neighbourhood with a great deal of community benefit including a Village Hall / Pavilion, land for our village green, drainage for the existing recreation field, a Car park, an orchard to the community, a cycleway, money towards Play Area equipment etc.
We will continue to seek community involvement in the years to come.
