The Ickleford Neighbourhood Plan – your chance to help shape the future of your village
The Parish Council believes that it would be a promising idea to create a Neighbourhood Plan to help shape the future of our village, and we are asking for your help to do so. The Plan would be sponsored and supported by Ickleford Parish Council, but needs to be driven by a team made up from the wider village community.  It would be the team’s responsibility to create the Vision, Objectives and Policies which make up the Plan.
Further information can be found here, and please do contact Cllr Miles Maxwell if you are interested in getting involved or would like to find out more -  or 17 Witter Avenue, Ickleford, SG5 3UF
