Neighbourhood Plan and CIL Project Consultation Events

We are holding two Open Consultation Events at our office for Melton residents to give their views on updates to our Neighbourhood Plan (NP), which is now 2 years old.  There will be more information on the NP website www.meltonneighbourhoodplan.co.uk  but please do come along to give your feedback.  We will also be giving further opportunities for residents to give their views online and at future open events.

These sessions will also be seeking residents’ views on how we intend to spend our Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) income.  We have a number of large projects in mind and we need to ensure they meet local needs and aspirations.  Many of these emerged from the NP.

Friday 7th February – 6-9pm

Saturday 8th February – 9am-noon

Tree planting at Orchard Close

The tree warden has planted some new trees at Orchard Close. Three wild cherries and one rowan have been planted  at the end of the close, parallel to the bollards separating the close from Bury Hill. A further four cherries and one rowan are alongside the path of the larger grassed area. We will be looking at carrying out some planting along the boundary of the playing field/Melton Road where we recently had to remove a diseased white willow tree.
