Kibworth Parish Councils – Public Consultation Event, Sunday 26 September

Kibworth Harcourt & Beauchamp Parish Councils

Consultation on 3 New Projects

The Parish Councils would like residents of the two Kibworths to give them their initial views on three exciting projects. The purpose of these projects is to improve facilities and services for both communities. These have been progressing over the past two years during lockdown.

Amongst the items we want to consult with residents are:

Open Spaces Strategy

The Open Spaces Strategy. This presents some new design ideas and facilities in the five current park areas for which the two parish councils have responsibility. Once finalised, any agreed improvements will be implemented in stages, as and when finances become available;

New Community Hub

Concept plans for a new Community Hub at the Grammar School Hall, backed by a detailed Needs Assessment. This might include providing a new home for the Kibworth Community Library. The renovated and extended building would be able to better support the wider needs of all of the community. Additionally, it would become a Hub for many support services.

Kibworth Grammar School

Refreshed Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan (refresh version). This has been updated to ensure it is compliant with the latest District Local Plan and National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

Opportunity to View & Comment – Sunday 26 September

The opportunity for Kibworth residents to see and comment on these projects will be on:

Sunday 26 September in the Kibworth Grammar School Hall10am until 3pm.

Councillors and others will be there to respond to your questions. There is no need to book, just turn up! Please come along and help us plan for the future of our community. Please observe safe distancing. Sanitiser and paper towels will be available.
