Beyond Green is launching a major stakeholder and public consultation exercise into its emerging proposals for a new sustainable community in Broadland. A number of stakeholder and public events will be taking place between 15th and 22nd June, including formal thematic workshops for statutory representatives, experts and professionals, evening ‘meet the team’ events, Q&A sessions, a Young People’s Forum and a public exhibition.
Invitations to the formal thematic workshops have been sent to a large number of community organisations, the business community, elected political representatives, public bodies and NGOs. Each lasting a half day, these events will cover the following topics:
- Delivering place and sustainable development: Beyond Green’s business model
- Creating jobs and delivering prosperity: a 21st century approach
- Creating community
- Generating energy, supplying water and dealing with waste: new technologies and new approaches
- Parks, green spaces, ecology, food and farming
- Sustainable transport and movement
- Sense of place, identity and character: design issues
Please note that these workshops are not public events, but are reserved for organisations and individuals with specialist interests in the themes above. If you have not received an invitation but would like to have more information about attending, please contact Hugo Orchard-Lisle by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public consultation events
During the same week, there will be a number of opportunities for members of the public to have a say in shaping the future of their area. These will include evening Q&A and ‘meet the team’ events, a public exhibition at Sprowston fête on Saturday 18th June, and a young people’s forum. In addition to this, we will also be attending Spixworth village fête on 10th July and the Old Catton Flower Show on 16th July. A full programme of events is available here.
These events will not be the final opportunity that people will have to help shape Beyond Green’s proposals. Consultation will continue later this year and will include design workshops in the autumn. If you would like to be kept informed about our consultation programme, please email email@example.com asking to be added to our mailing list.
