Estates like Yorke Drive are communities, and consist of more than the people who live there. As part of the consultation, community groups, charities, churches, businesses, schools, shops and statutory organisations will be fully consulted and encouraged to take part in the master-planning process.
If you or your organisation is working in the Yorke Drive estate area, and want to know more about what is being proposed and how you can get involved, please contact the Project Team via Harriet Partington at 01636 655462 or Harriet.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ways to be involved
Fill in the residents household survey – residents can fill in the survey that is being carried out in the area. The survey is available online until the end of May.
Attend an event
During the next few months, you will be invited to events, workshops and exhibitions to discuss the development and masterplan.
These will be advertised in the newsletter, on Facebook and Twitter.
Yorke Drive Residents Consultative Panel
As part of the household survey we asked residents if they would like to be involved in a Consultative Panel, to work with the architects and other members of the Yorke Drive team. 33 residents said they would be keen to get involved, with a further 38 residents indicating that they would like to learn more about what being part of the panel will involve.
