Kelvedon Residents – KNP really is all about you - Kelvedon Neighbourhood Plan

Kelvedon Residents – KNP really is all about you

Kelvedon Neighbourhood Plan totally depends on Kelvedon residents and the final decision is in your hands.

The KNP team is working to produce a robust plan that developers must adhere to if they wish to develop anything in Kelvedon during the 15 year plan period. Only Kelvedon residents will have the chance to vote ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ in the referendum to accept the Neighbourhood Plan. If residents reject the plan, then outside agencies will decide what Kelvedon will receive and how its character will evolve.

To help our plan to succeed, we need residents to know what is happening and why. We need to keep in touch with you and gain your support, so that we can all shape the future of Kelvedon.

We owe a huge thanks to everyone who has supported us in 2017. Whether you …

Without you, our work would be pointless. So please continue to support us and spread the word, share information and take part in every opportunity to have your say.

We would like to end this year with thanks to another group of local volunteers in the Kelvedon Community Association who have raised £4,000 to purchase Christmas lights for the village. Demand is so high KCA needs to buy even more for next year, so it will be organising fund raising events during the year. Huge thanks to KCA for helping making the village look so festive.

If you would like to have KCA lights on your home or business in the High St next year, or if you can share your time to help put lights up, please contact either Jane Waters on 07976 617281 or Jeremy Doughton on 07843 938707. Or you can visit the KCA website  http://www.kelvedoncommunityassociation.co.uk/

Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year from the KNP Team!
