Alnwick Community Partnership Event
Tuesday 18th June 2013
On Tuesday 18th June a Community Partnership Meeting was held at the St James’s Church Centre in Alnwick.
The event opened at 6pm and got underway at 6.30pm. The topic for the evening was Developing Proposals for the Neighbourhood Plan. There was an excellent turnout — at least 60 people — who listened to short talks by Peter Biggers, Bill Batey, County Council officers and the various topic leads and then broke out into groups for discussions. A pdf of Peter’s presentation document can be downloaded here.
The evening finished with a summary and a short voting exercise using hand-helds (well done Kevin!). This took the form of 5 questions and the poll results can be downloaded as a pdf here.
A lot of hard work went into making the evening a success, and we must thank Charlotte Colver for her excellent work on the maps, Kevin Bartlett for his IT skills and Peter and Bill for laying the groundwork. Special thanks also to the topic leads who (let it not be forgotten) are unpaid and are providing unstinting support and expertise in their various areas.
Community Engagement: Discussion Forum
On the 24th July a crosscutting Discussion Forum was held at the St James's Church Centre in Alnwick.

We now have a confirmed date for a Cross Cutting Discussion Forum with Stakeholders, Community Members and members of the Alnwick Community Forum This is to be held at the St James’s Church Centre in Pottergate on Tuesday 24th July between 6.00pm and 9.30pm. Refreshments will be available.
The main intentions of this Discussion Forum are to:
- Understand what the other Topic issues are.
- Identify issues that crossover into other Topic areas.
- Discuss the What, Where, Why, When and Who? of each Topic area.
- Move forward as one Group.
- Help inform the next stage in setting objectives and options for the Alnwick and Denwick Neighbourhood Plan.
We are aiming to have invited members from a broad range of the community attending to make the discussions as varied as possible and to help take into account all of the different angles that communities view planning from.
