Early promotion & Publicity – Market Drayton Messenger issues 8,9,10 2015
Pre-Consultation Event 5th & 9th September 2015
As well as promoting the idea of a Neighbourhood Plan for Market Drayton, these Events were held with a view to engaging with the population and hopefully extracting issues that had not previously been identified and prioritised and which could add to the forming of detailed plans and proposals.
The Saturday 5th September Event gave Town Councillors the opportunity to promote and explain as to what would be happening on the following Wednesday and this was that a representatives of the Neighbourhood Plan team would have a stall within the street market and would be available for residents to find out more detail about the Neighbourhood Plan and for comments to be received and recorded based on a series of prompts. At the same time, an all day drop in exhibition would be held in the Festival Drayton Centre at which the public could meet with the team and offer views via discussions or post it notes on topics based on the following themes:
Most importantly ‘What have we missed?’
The weather proved to be extremely kind on the 9th of September and hence the street market was extremely busy leading to a good level of engagement both in the street and at the Festival Drayton Centre.
