Steering Group

The Steering Group is responsible for the Neighbourhood Development Plan project and is made up of volunteers from the three parishes (including representatives from the three parish councils). The Terms of Reference of the Steering Group can be read here.

Regular meetings are held at Whitmore Village Hall on the 4th Tuesday of each month. All meetings start at 7.15pm and are open to the public. Please come along to ask questions, contribute your thoughts and ideas or just to listen.

Minutes of the meetings can be read here.

The Steering Group welcomes interest and offers from new volunteers and is always keen to add to its skills base. We also welcome help from community members who enjoy walking  and can help with tasks such as delivering leaflets and putting up posters (and taking them down again after the event).
