Shipton parish news

As this edition takes us into the New Year, some thoughts on the coming year may be useful. 2018 brings Parish Council elections and some of your councillors will be standing down. We would really appreciate a number of young, enthusiastic volunteers to promote the village’s interests over the next few years. We need help and participation rather than criticism, although that tends to go with the job! A strong village voice will be especially important in 2018 as a number of sensitive planning projects will move ahead such as detailed planning permission for the Shipton and Milton housing developments, the reuse of Bowerham and so on. There will be approval of the Local Plan, the need to stimulate employment and think about how we can make our village an attractive place for young people without whom we become a fossilised location with a poor future. So come and join us!

December 2017 – January 2018
