Felixstowe residents are invited to join a new panel which will enable the views and needs of local people to be considered in the development of a new garden neighbourhood in the north of the town.
East Suffolk Council is leading the master-planning process for a new neighbourhood in the north of Felixstowe.
Community engagement is at the heart of the master-planning process and over the next 12 months, a range of events, workshops and ways to comment will be developed to ensure the local community is kept up to date with the project, and that local needs are being considered.
An important element is the formation of a Citizens' Panel, a demographically representative group of local people brought together to learn about the project and provide their thoughts about the project.
The panel will explore issues around climate change, community facilities, affordable housing, energy and local employment. Participants will be paid in kind for their involvement in the panel.
Applications for the Citizens' Panel are now closed.
