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 development.

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.

Quorn joins NatureSpot Project

Posted to website February 24th 2017

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 information about the success or otherwise of the various species living in and around our village. Please visit the website and add your sightings to support the initiative.
