Our chairman, Richard, has had a busy week attending a couple of meetings with key stakeholders.
The Head of Planning at Broxtowe Borough Council asked him to present to a group of 50+ local council planners at an East Midlands regional planners event. He presented on the set-up and ambitions of our Forum and focussed on the benefits we have derived from our collaboration with the team of planners at Broxtowe.
He followed that up with a presentation at the end of the week to the George Spencer Academy ‘family’ of schools in the area. The theme this time was how we want to engage with all schools in our area and encourage the children to provide input. Again the presentation was very well received with all the schools ‘signing up’ to help the Forum.
As a result, expect to see the Forum represented at a couple of Christmas fetes being held at schools in the next few weeks.
