Key Contacts List

One of the initiatives of the Statement of Community Involvement is to maintain an up-to-date list of 'Key Contacts'. This is a list of organisations and groups that the Council will consider contacting for consultation on its Local Development Framework.

Individuals can subscribe to the LDF e-mail alert to be kept in touch with progress on the Local Development Framework.
