One of the major activities of the Committee over the past three months has been to develop a timeline for the various tasks needed to deliver the plan. This includes reaching agreement on the headline topics for consideration and consultation with as much of the village as we can reach. The latest iteration of the timeline indicates publication of the Plan around the end of September 2017.
Some people may feel that this is longer than should be necessary. There are two main factors that contribute to this time scale.
Firstly, our objective from the outset has been to engage with as many people in Hardwick as possible. We are doing this in an effort to deliver a plan that reflects a broad range of ideas and views – not just those of established and/or vocal groups and individuals. This is difficult and takes time.
Secondly, there are currently only a small number of volunteers actively engaged with the planning process. Despite them giving generously of their time, a task that normally take a day to complete can take a month when someone can only devote a couple of hours a week.
If you want to accelerate the process, please volunteer to play an active role.
