Come along to our AGM and get involved!

The Annual General Meeting of the Margate Neighbourhood Plan Forum will be held on Thursday 14th January 5.30pm-7.30pm in The Foyle Room at the Turner Contemporary, Margate. The nomination form for steering committee positions are available to download here.

The Margate Neighbourhood Plan designated area was officially recognised by Thanet District Council on May 1st 2014, following a public consultation carried out by Thanet District Council.

Membership of the Margate Neighbourhood Plan Forum is open to all who live and/or work in the Margate area and who support the purposes of the Forum, and we look forward to meeting new members and neighbours at the AGM. There’s been a lot of work going on by volunteer group members in the last year and it will be great to share this and get feedback.

We hope you will join us on January 14th!

LOCAL LIST SYMPOSIUM
EAST KENT HERITAGE COMMUNITY

TUESDAY 17TH  MARCH 2015 10.00 – 16.00
FOYLE ROOMS, TURNER CONTEMPORARY,  MARGATE

Local Lists are part of National Planning Policy. They have been around for many years and nearly half of Local Planning Authorities in England already have them. Thanet does not yet have Local Lists.

Local lists provide an opportunity for communities to have their views on local heritage heard. Local lists play an essential role in building and reinforcing a sense of local character and distinctiveness in the historic environment.  Local lists can be used to identify significant local heritage assets to support the development of Local and Neighbourhood Plans.

The event is free and open to everyone, but places are limited and must be strictly booked in advance.

To make a reservation, Please contact  Geoff Orton:  Geoff.Orton@tesco.net

Special thanks to Turner Contemporary for hosting the event.
