Want to know more about the Ringwood Neighbourhood Plan?

The Ringwood Neighbourhood Plan team is delighted to announce that they will have a display in the Gateway Building next to Ringwood Car Park running from 15th to 29th October.

The display will provide a flavour of the areas that will be covered by the Neighbourhood Plan and is an opportunity for everyone to share their views and comments on the ideas the team have generated so far.

Chair of the Neighbourhood Plan, Councillor John Haywood said “The Neighbourhood Plan is all about future land use in the parish, it describes features like green spaces, historic buildings and elements of building design and heritage that we want to retain.  It also highlights things that can be improved like energy efficiency of new developments, making the town centre more vibrant and the need for smaller, affordable homes. We hope that people will take this opportunity to provide vital feedback to help us to shape the plan.”

The display will be available during Gateway opening hours and on Saturdays. It will be manned by members of the Neighbourhood Plan team at the following times.

  • 9am to 1pm on Saturdays
  • 9am to 11am on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays
  • 11am to 1pm on Wednesdays
  • 3pm to 4pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays
  • 5pm to 7pm on Wednesdays

Mary DeBoos, the Neighbourhood Plan project manager added “We will also be showcasing some of the ideas that the young people of Ringwood have about the future of their town.  These include their thoughts about how to make Ringwood a more vibrant town centre and how simple changes might provide more for young people to do in the town. We hope that local people and businesses will take the opportunity to view their work and add their own thoughts.”
