A new blueprint for Pegswood

MORE public input is being sought to draw up a fresh blueprint for local services at Pegswood.

The Parish Plan will be updated to outline aspirations for the village in terms of future development, facilities and improvement schemes.

Work was started on the project by Pegswood Parish Council last year, but it has now been passed down to a steering group to ensure residents have a full say.

And one of the members, local businessman Alan Tilmouth, has set up a weblog to make it even easier for people to become involved.

Parish Chairman Simon Willcox said: "We have outsourced the Parish Plan because we didn't want the people of the village to see it as the Council doing everything and making all the decisions.

"We wanted the community to be more involved, which is why we have set up the steering group."
