- update on next rounds and
- a look at two Neighbourhood Development Plans at more advanced stages – Exeter St Davidsand Thame both of which passed at referendum on 2 May, including looking at their policiesrather than the spatial ‘site allocations’ plan.
- We will also be discussing the next steps training that would be most most helpful to groups, so it would be most useful to have representatives at this meeting from the communities that are drawing up their neighbourhood development plans in Bristol, ie Knowle West, Lockleaze, Lawrence Weston, Old Market, and Redcliffe Way.
