Posted to website September 7th 2018

September sees the group presenting two great events and both are open to members and guests.

On Monday 24th at 7.00pm at St Bartholomew's United Church, an informal evening - My Unusual Relative. You are encouraged to talk about that unusual/special person that lurks within yours and every family tree.

Then, on Sunday 30th September in the Village Hall starting at 7.00pm the QLHG presents WW2 Treasure Hunters (History Channel) - The making of the 82nd Airborne and German POWS episode in QUORN. This promises to be a very interesting evening with the episode being shown in full, artefacts found will be available to view and there will be time to ask questions of the highly experienced TV presenter and chairman of the WW2 Relic Retrieval & Preservation, Stephen Taylor. Tickets, on the door are £5.00 (Members and under 16s = £3.00). To guarantee your place ticket reservations can be made by email to dennis.marchant@btinternet.com.

Quorn Neighbourhood Plan - update

Posted to website June 14th 2018

If you are thinking that you haven't seen or heard much about the Neighbourhood Plan of late, well you would be correct. This is not that work has stopped, it hasn't - it has been a busy time putting together the Plan which is now in its Pre-Submission Draft form and was approved by the Advisory Committee on 11th June and is being presented to the Parish Council for their approval in July. The aim is that the public consultation will commence at the end of July when all the stakeholders and residents will have the chance to comment on the Plan. The village will be informed where, when and how to comment in due course.

The delay, in part is due to Charnwood Borough Councils decision to introduce a new Local Plan consultation document. It is necessary to have a housing target to work to over the Neighbourhood Plan period and this is needed to know how many homes to allocate in the Plan. Ordinarily we must meet the targets specified in the Local Plan as Neighbourhood Plans cannot promote fewer houses than CBC require. The discussion document 'Towards a Local Plan for Charnwood' published in April 2018 identifies the need for housing growth up to 2036, it is this document that the Plan must comply with. The document identifies a range of new home numbers for the Borough up to 2036. It identifies options for distributing this level of growth but doesn't establish Parish-wide targets, so it has been necessary for the team to put together a Methodology Document which is now complete and has been to presented CBC who it is hoped will agree the approach.
