There is another opportunity to for residents to find out more about the St Annes Neighbourhood Plan today (Thurs) ahead of the deadline for feedback at the end of this month.

Officials of the town council will be at Sainsbury’s supermarket, St Andrew’s Road North, this afternoon from 3 to 5pm to display and discuss the draft plan and how future development of the town can be influenced by views from residents and community groups.

The plan will be used to develop a shared vision for the town, to allocate land for different uses, to identify local green spaces and to influence what new buildings should look like. Residents are invited to give their views via a questionnaire by July 31.

To help further raise awareness of the Neighbourhood Plan, Town Council staff organised an art activity in Ashton Gardens during St Annes Carnival, where children were invited to ‘draw something you love about St Annes’.

Enough drawings were completed to form several lines of bunting now on display in the porch at the Town Council offices and Town Clerk Sally Taylor said: “The children were very enthusiastic and we hope adults will match their passion for the town by getting involved in the Neighbourhood Plan.”

Details of the draft plan and questionnaire online at www.stannesonthesea-tc.gov.uk/neighbourhood-plan while hard copies for reference are at St Annes Library, Fylde Council and the council offices in St George’s Road.
