Earlier Plan consultation events

February launch events

Plan consultation was launched with five events and information sessions in March 2019. Over 200 residents attended. The events discussed a range of themes – traffic, community life and facilities, infrastructure, environment, the impacts of development in general and key considerations for specific housing sites. Attendees were asked to note what was most important to them and write down more detailed feedback, including ideas about how to deal with particular issues.  Detailed feedback from these events is available below:

    • Launch events feedback report traffic appendix – available above as an appendix to the final Plan


June consultation events

Three events were held in June 2019. The events combined presentations, a Q+A and discussion on specific themes. CFO staff were in attendance, plus a representative (at the Saturday event) from Terence O’Rourke Planning, which will be working with Blenheim on forthcoming planning applications.

Just under a hundred people attended these events, with 56 signing up to be involved in next steps discussions/ workshops.

The presentations set out the intent of the plan, progress to date, ‘headline’ results from the April 2019 community survey, an overview of the process of working up planning applications on specific sites and a summary of the more community-oriented projects emerging from the consultation to date and how to take these ideas forward.
