Wycombe District Council (WDC) is working with Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish Council on a detailed study to look at how Longwick could change in the future.
WCD feel is it important that local people living in and around the village find out more about possible changes and comment on them. As a result a drop in event is to be held from 3.00pm until 9.00pm on Tuesday 7th October 2014 Longwick Village Hall.
The event will set out some of the topics which Wycombe District Council and the local Parish Council are looking at as part of the Longwick Capacity Study, these include :
- looking at Longwick as a whole
- what works now and what needs improving in the village
- the opportunities and the threats for the future character of the village
Working together the two councils want to hear local views about:
- roads, transport, drainage and flooding
- social facilities and local needs
- landscape and local wildlife
…and what people think is best about the village and what is important to preserve.
This event is a follow-up to the meeting held last month to discuss the proposal for up to 175 dwellings off Boxer Road and Barn Road.
Wycombe District Council will use findings and recommendations from the Longwick Village Capacity study to help to inform thinking in considering planning applications and to feed into the Local Plan.
As well as an exhibition, local councillors from Wycombe District Council and Longwick-cum-Ilmer Parish council will join planning officers and consultants working on the study to be on hand to meet people face to face.
The event is adult and child friendly with a variety of activities designed to help young and old to explore and express their thoughts about what is best about the village and how change could support that.
If you can’t get to the event, all the exhibition information will be on the Wycombe Disctrict Council website where you can contribute your thoughts and comments online from Tuesday 7th October 2014 until Monday 13th October 2014.
