The Maidencombe Community Group reported earlier that meetings are being planned with Andrew Gunther, Senior Planning Officer, Torbay Council, to hear about the proposed Village Envelope and what it will mean to residents and also to discuss the forthcoming Neighbourhood Plan.
The authors of the current Maidencombe submission to the Neighbourhood Plan will be present at the forthcoming meeting with the MCG in February.
Andrew Gunther has also very kindly agreed to appear at the MCG meeting to explain the processes and answer residents' questions.
It has been pointed out that the recent letter circulated by the MRA is not accurate. The MRA meeting at Brunel Manor is NOT ‘the only chance for community members’ to discuss the Village Envelope and the Neighbourhood Plan.
The MCG meeting will provide residents with an opportunity for discussion with Andrew Gunther and members of the community who have been involved in the development of the Neighbourhood Plan.
There is also a consultation period which will commence February 8th and last for six weeks.
If residents cannot attend the meetings or if they have specific questions, they can contact the MCG, who will ensure that everyone is represented and any questions are passed on to Andrew Gunther.
The MCG will continue to post information about the Village Envelope on its website. Residents are urged to register on the site to stay informed and view any information that is posted.
