Long Stratton resident wants people to ‘come together to aid town’
A Long Stratton man is encouraging members of the community to come together to create a neighbourhood improvement plan.
Brian Webb hopes the plan can be agreed by residents and used to protect and develop community spaces in the town.
Mr Webb, of Sturmy Close, has encouraged residents to go along to the Methodist church in Manor Road on Thursdays, between 10am and noon, to begin discussions on how to move the idea forward.
He said: “There’s lots of areas that could be developed, but there’s no structure to collectively engage with the council to develop them.”
The offer comes in the wake of Long Stratton Town Council’s proposed purchase of the Methodist church falling through. It had hoped to secure the building’s use for community groups.
The buyout was initially approved in November, but legal complications scuppered the move earlier this month.
