LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
The Village Plan sets the Parish Council’s priorities for the future.
It informs the Parish Council as to what facilities and improvements are required in the village.
It informs community groups and voluntary groups about what additional services are wanted in the village,
provides evidence to support funding bids and it can be used to press for improvements in services provided by
the District and Borough Council.
So it can make a real difference in improving the village and peoples’ lives.
Some 30 people attended the Weston Centre in March and helped look back at the Parish Council’s 2005 plan to
see what had been achieved and what still needed to be done.
The group considered that since 2005 the following had been achieved:
Improved recycling facilities - Amber Valley Borough Council
Improved sports facilities - Ecclesbourne School Sports Complex
New children’s play area on the Gray Rec. - Parish Council
Improve rights of way/footpaths Derbyshire County Council / Parish council.
The group agreed that a new village plan was needed and nine people volunteered to be part of the Steering
Group, which is due to meet on 4th April at 7pm Meeting Room at the Cemetery on Hazelwood Road.
If you would like to join the Steering Group or need further details please contact Liz Page via email.
