From the WCC coalition:
The enthusiasm and support for the Community Plan has been astounding and it continues to grow. In just a week we’ve had over 50 people leave their comments on the Council’s planning website, clearly showing them that local people want to see community-led development at Wards Corner and throughout the rest of Tottenham.
If you haven’t left your comments yet now is the perfect time to do so. The Council can decide whether or not to grant permission to the plan any time after Friday 28th, so there isn’t much time left if you want to be sure that your comments are taken into account when the Council make their decision. You can follow this link to leave your comments, and make sure to tick ‘support’ so the feedback is easier to count. http://tinyurl.com/WCCplan
The Council website presents the plan in a slightly confusing way, but you can view it on our own dedicated website here https://wardscornercommunityplan.wordpress.com/
This Thursday 27th March we are celebrating the submission of the Community Plan with a special launch event, offering you a chance to step inside the Community Plan and take a virtual tour.
We’ve been working with Creative Citizens and using the StickyWorld.com platform to bring you this opportunity and to explore innovative new ways to engage people in planning. It is vital that people are empowered to make decisions about planning in the areas they live and work, and this requires more than surveys and consultation on policies.
StickyWorld.com offers people a visually engaging way to view and comment on plans, it also makes these comments public and allows people to discuss the issues that are important to them. So make sure you come along on Thursday and add your comments to the discussion about the future of Wards Corner. There will be a short presentation of the plans, lots of people on hand to guide you through the website, and free refreshments too!
You can RSVP for free here to help us get an idea of numbers http://tinyurl.com/WCCrsvp
