Chearsley Village Plan
It might seem that things have gone quiet lately about the Village Plan, but meetings, discussions and ideas in the various topic groups have been taking place over the past few months by some of the villagers who were prepared to get involved under the chairmanship of John Lewis. It is hoped that an interim document can very soon be put together and an Open meeting arranged around the middle of October for all the village to attend. Imput from as many villagers as possible is still very much at the forefront of the Plan. The Plan is being formulated for how the village (everyone) wants Chearsley to be in 10 or 20 years time and for some of the ideas now being discussed to be able to happen. Any interest and involvement in any of the topic groups is still very much welcome. All details are available to view on the website under the planning forum link. The various topic groups are:
