Petworth Town Council announces public consultation event for the Neighbourhood Plan
Crucial next stage gives residents the opportunity to review Draft Plan
Petworth Town Council has announced the date of its next public consultation event for the town’s Neighbourhood Plan. Residents are invited to drop in at any time from 10am until 9pm on Friday 31st March at the Leconfield Hall. This crucial next stage gives the people of Petworth the opportunity to review the Draft Plan. The Draft Plan consolidates the findings from last year’s public consultation when the majority of residents (57%) voted for Housing Option 1 which included sites adjacent to Petworth Primary School and to the south of the town. Since that time, over 30 volunteers have studied the results and gathered further evidence to support the development of the document.
