There’s a call-out for volunteer walkers who would like to ‘help preserve the look and feel of Ruddington as a village’. Ruddington Neighbourhood Plan (RNP) is seeking residents of all ages to give up a little of their time this month and join them on the next stage of the project, which is The Design Guide.
The RNP project team explains: “The Design Guide is being developed as part of the Neighbourhood Plan, but can also be used as a standalone document and carries weight in local decision making relating to development proposals. The first stage of The Design Guide creation is carrying out what are known as ‘Walkovers’ – whereby Project Team members, consultants and members of the public walk around the key areas of the village, discussing and identifying key features of the villagescape and landscape that contribute to Ruddington’s character.”
There will be two early evening Village Walks; one focusing on small scale development and the other on large scale developments. No experience nor specific knowledge is required, however you will need to register in advance to take part. The whole family is welcome!
Both walks will begin at St Peter’s Rooms – where welcome refreshments will be served – and finish by approximately 8.30pm. Organisers ask you to appreciate that there will be a fair amount of walking required, albeit it will be at a slow place with plenty of stops. Places will be granted on a first come first serve basis, so don’t delay if you fancy going along. Also please ensure you are available on either or both the dates and times, below, before registering.
Tuesday 20th August 6.30pm: Small Development Village Walk
Thursday 22nd August 6.30pm: Large Development Village Walk
Then email email@example.com with your name, contact details, the ward you live in and the walk(s) you’d like to join. Registrations close on Wednesday 14th August.
