Neighbourhood Plan Open Day
Posted to website August 17th 2017
An important date for your diary is Saturday 19th August 2017, 10.00am
to1.00pm. This will be the first village ‘Open event’ and
will take place in the Village Hall. It is an opportunity for the Quorn
community to find out about Neighbourhood Planning and what it can and
can’t do. It is our chance to tell the local community what has
been achieved to date and what still needs to take place but importantly,
it is your chance to have a say. Who knows you may even be willing to
contribute and have something to offer to the process moving forward.
People will be there to answer any questions and there will be display
boards with relevant and local information on, guidance notes about neighbourhood
planning, examples of other Neighbourhood Plans, the chance for you to
make your comments and theme group interest forms (for people to confirm
interest if they wish to become involved). People will also be encouraged
to identify suitable sites for environmental protection and any housing
So, this is your chance to come and see what’s happening and to
have your say. The Quorn Neighbourhood Plan is facilitated by the Parish
Council but is a Community project. Oh! And refreshments (free) will be
available ... so come on down.

A website has been set up which enables the viewing and recording of all
aspects of wildlife occurring in our area for the parish of Quorn. On
visiting the site you can add your own wildlife sightings and also check
what else has been seen.
This is a very good resource for the village that in time will give important

in and around our village. Please visit the website and add your sightings
