Haddenham CLT Hosts Community Engagement Event
Mon 12 Dec 2016
On Wednesday 7th December the Arkenstall Centre in Haddenham was opened up to the public for Haddenham Community Land Trust's second community engagement event. The event was a huge success with over 150 people from the local area coming along to get involved. Also in attendance were the trustees of Haddenham CLT, developer Palace Green Homes, local architects Saunders Boston and, of course, Emily and Debbie from CLT East. The proposal being put forward is for 54 homes on land at West End, Haddenham. 16 of these homes would be affordable and owned by the CLT in perpetuity. The plans showed a low-density, high-quality development with generous green space. One of the things the Community Land Trust were keen to find out was what the community felt would make the best use of these green spaces.
The CLT managed to sign up an additional 22 members on the night and sent lots of people home with membership forms and Expressions of Interest which they were keen to fill out. There were also 36 feedback forms completed regarding the proposed development plans for the land at West End, again with more expected back in the post. This was a great opportunity for the CLT to take a measure of what the community liked about the development and what their key areas of concern are, and to consider these things going forward.
The feedback will now all be collated and analysed in time for a feedback presentation planned for the new year. Haddenham Community Land Trust are keen to be representative of the whole community and as such are always seeking new members from the local area. Please find more information on the CLT, including membership forms and Expressions of Interest on their website www.haddenhamclt.org.uk
If you were unable to make the event but have comments you would like to make then do not fret! Palace Green Homes are accepting feedback until the 17th December at firstname.lastname@example.org
