IFPC sets out action plan
Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council will commence works on projects upcoming in the next financial year. The action plan is reviewed annually to accurately reflect the aims and objectives of the council.
IFPC will continue to assist Greater Anglia and the Railway Heritage Trust with the renovation works of the Signalman's Cottage at Ingatestone train station and develop a local museum once the works are completed.
We can also announce that investigations will commence into the installation of a new floodlit 3G sports pitch in order to assist further with the development of sport in the local area. The council will look to obtain funding and planning permission in 2022.
IFPC hope that the Neighbourhood Plan will be adopted formally this year through referendum, the plan is currently at Regulation Stage 15 where it is available to the public to read: https://www.brentwood.gov.uk/-/ingatestone-and-fryerning-np.
In 2021, our Health and Wellbeing, Climate and Emergency and Economic Development working groups will focus on key projects. The Economic Development Working Group will investigate bringing a farmers market to the villages this year, as well as connecting with local businesses together to identify areas of improvement.
The Health and Wellbeing group will continue to work towards becoming a dementia friendly village, as well as work to reduce social isolation and loneliness in identified groups by co-ordinating events.
The Climate Emergency working group will work with the local community to implement a climate emergency plan and will work on creating more refill and tree planting schemes.
