Launch of Community Led Plan

The launch on Saturday 20th July at the Memorial hall of the Community Led Plan (CLP) for Charlbury consultation was a great success with around 120 people attending to give their views, discuss ideas, issues and initiatives. As well as the CLP display, visitors also had the chance to review projects currently underway in Charlbury. These were The Beacon Project, Southill Solar, Charlbury Community Centre and Walkers are Welcome, with great interest shown in all of them.
We have received almost 100 postcards through the website and collection boxes telling us what you like about Charlbury and what may be needed in the next 5 to 15 years.
Our initial analysis of the postcards posted in our collection boxes will probably not surprise many people. the key issues were keeping town centre shops, providing more affordable housing(social or other), building the proposed Community Centre, the future use of the Corner House, traffic calming & parking. There were many other issues noted, but these were the most frequent concerns raised. We'll be collating all the information from the launch event to add to this over the coming weeks, as well as planning further events around the town, including a stall at the Street Fair. If you haven't commented yet, go to the CLP webpage on this site where you can still post your comments on line.
We are also collecting questionnaires from organisations in the town about the future of all facilties, such as the Memorial Hall & Corner House, so if you have one of these but haven't returned it. please send it in soon.
Thank you to all those who took the time to complete and return the postcards and to attend the event. Look out for advertised events on the website and the notice boards.
