DESIGN DAY

On Saturday 14th July we held a Neighbourhood Plan Design Day – Designing the new edge of the village together Design Day #1 at the Methodist Church.  The Day was facilitated by Angela Koch of ImaginePlaces Ltd and Robert Sakula of Ash Sakula Architects and hosted by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group.   Over 35 people attended throughout the day with the majority attending the whole day.   As Angela said it was a ‘productive, educational and fun’ day and she thanked us for ‘all the great ideas, debate and collaborative building and planting work’.   All those who came along had the opportunity to visit a possible development site (the Aecom preferred site shown in our Draft Plan), then using scale maps worked together to come up with a design for a small development encompassing what the group thought should be built including a good mix of types of homes (as you have indicated you want) and a new Shenley Village Centre with a Community café and other community facilities.  The end design was really interesting.   A big thank you to everyone who took part.
