The members of the Steering Group are all volunteers. Some of us volunteered at the first meeting on 24 September 2013. At this first meeting we heard that a neighbourhood plan should enable us to decide where development should take place and the nature of it. Everyone would be entitled to a view, as part of the process of collecting evidence to support the plan.
Other people volunteered later as they became aware of what we are doing. What we have in common is that we all live in Blewbury and all want the best for our village.

A very big ‘thank you’ to the volunteers who helped to distribute and collect the Housing Needs Survey, and to the people who attended focus groups on specialist subject areas.
