The recent Borough Council Core Strategy Exhibition in the Village Hall generated significant interest and a lot of strong feedback on the scale of development. A Village Development Working Group has been meeting regularly and liaising with the Parish Council to draft a response to the Core Strategy.
The Working Group wishes to provide villagers with the opportunity to explore that feedback and discuss the different courses of action open to us. Even if you have been to previous meetings, we now want villagers to help decide the best solution for South Marston’s future.
To reach as many residents as possible, we are running a series of three identical meetings at different dates and times of the day and hope you will be able to come to one of them.
Each meeting will last less than 1½ hours with a presentation by a member of the Working Group, followed by a question and answer session. A questionnaire will be available and this will provide important evidence to both the Working Party and the Parish Council.
The meetings will also help residents with their own individual responses to the Core Strategy. Please note the deadline for submitting responses to Swindon Borough has been extended from the 19th May to the 16th June.
