The first public consultation event took place on Wednesday 12 August at the recently re-opened Prince of Wales public house. SCNP Team Leader Paul Firth opened the proceedings with a presentation on the value of a neighbourhood plan to Steeple Claydon. This was followed by a question and answer session. The Team would like to thank the large audience who made the effort to attend (there was standing room only left by the start of the meeting). The feedback comments, during and after the meeting, has been very constructive and will help to make a very positive contribution to the formulation of the plan.
