A start has been made to undertake online research into the methodology of approach followed by Parish Councils around the country.
At the 20th November 2018 meeting of the WPC Planning & Licensing Committee, a representative from the Codicote Parish Council was invited to share their experiences, which was extremely helpful.
The Welwyn Parish Council has since established a Neighbourhood Planning Working Party, to be chaired by Cllr Mark Castle, with Ian Skidmore (Chairman Welwyn Parish Planning Group) as Vice-chairman.
It is expected that at least two members of the WPAG Committee will be invited to join the Working Party, and we are advising on suitable wider membership.
We will report on the progress of this Working Party.
