A meeting is to be held to discuss the formation of a Parish Plan committee.
The meeting is open to all parishioners to learn about the function of a Village Parish Plan and how it can affect the future of Skirlaugh and how it has been used to good effect in other East Riding villages.
Housing, NHS, local sport and community groups could all be affected in the future, and the Parish Plan is a structured document which will lay down guidelines for the future development of Skirlaugh.
For the Parish Plan to be successful Skirlaugh needs the involvement of community members so as to cover all aspects of the village and village life.
The project us supported by Humber & Wolds Rural Community Council who will address the meeting and give full details and explanations.
Skirlaugh Parish Council has started this initiative and Councillors Edward Atkinson and Richard Corden are initially overseeing the Parish Plan in the hope of setting up a Parish Plan committee.
The Parish Plan committee will be a separate organisation to Skirlaugh Parish Council, although it is expected that both the Parish Plan committee and Parish Council will work closely together.
If you are interested in being part of the Parish Plan, please come to the meeting on the 15th July in the Village Hall 7pm
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available during the meeting in the village hall.
We look forward to seeing you there
