Community Liaison

Community consultation continues to play a vital role in delivering a site that will meet the needs of current and future residents.

The Drakelow Park team held public exhibitions at the Rosliston Forestry Centre on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th May 2008. More than 200 local residents attended and provided their feedback about what they would and wouldn't like to see on the site.

A second event was held on Friday 26th September 2008 and Saturday 27th September 2008 which was attended by 120 members of local communities.

In addition comments have also been submitted through a comment form on this website and by emailing victoria@vwcommunications.co.uk

The information gathered at the public exhibitions, meetings and through the website has been used to inform the final masterplan for the site.

A brochure outlining the changes to the masterplan was produced and distributed in 2010.

A Drakelow Park liaison group was created, comprising of members of the community, local groups, parish and ward councillors from surrounding areas, as well as representatives from the Drakelow Park project team.

The group is designed to maintain open lines of communication between residents and interested local groups and the Drakelow team to allow issues and ideas to be raised throughout the application process and on the detailed planning application.

The Liaison Group has met on:

If you would like to raise a point for discussion at these meetings please email victoria@vwcommunications.co.uk or contact your parish council who will be happy to ask any questions on your behalf.

The Drakelow Park team recently presented at the Area Committee meeting and Stapenhill Parish Council. A copy of the presentation is available by clicking here.

Further consultation will be organised as part of the reserved matters (detailed) application for phase one. This consultation is likely to take place in 2012/13.
