Village Plan meeting a success

Village Plan meeting a success

On Wednesday 20th January the Hampton Wick Association hosted our local Village Plan consultation meeting.

The council are drawing up Plans for each community within the borough. The Village Plans will set priorities and provide guidance for planning and other public services over the next five years.

We were asked to organise and publicise a meeting at which local residents could say what is important to us, what we like and want more of in Hampton Wick, what we don’t like and what we want fixed.

The meeting was held at St John’s Church Warehouse – a fantastic new facility in Hampton Wick.

More than sixty people came along and took part in group discussions which were written up by HWA volunteers acting as facilitators. The information will be used by the Council as they draft up the first draft of our Village Plan.

The HWA commissioned local filmmaker Alan Benns to help us create a short video to stimulate discussion. This was promoted on the website and through Twitter in advance as well as being shown at the start of the meeting.

William Reed, the Council’s Community Links Officer, commented after the meeting:

“In case I didn’t get round to saying it to all of you, my congratulations on a marvellous meeting last night. This was, proportionately, the largest Village meeting held so far, and it certainly had a marvellous atmosphere and a truly positive and committed feel – people living in Hampton Wick are certainly proud of doing so and determined to improve it.”
