Community must get involved in planning for future


More than 20 people attended a public meeting organised by Appleby Town Council on Wednesday 25th November 2015 to find out about the Council’s aspiration to have a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish.


The meeting was chaired by Cllr Keith Morgan who is also the chairman of the Council’s Neighbourhood Plan Working Party.  John Boardman, a Planning Officer from Eden District Council explained to the meeting what a Neighbourhood Development Plan is and what it is not; and also detailed the process for developing such a plan.


Cllr Morgan said “There will be considerable benefits for the Appleby of the future if the community comes together now to say what type of houses should be built, what businesses the town needs and which areas should be protected as green space.”

Christmas Card Launch
