Following the successful project run in both South West Community Area and Southern Community Area, Tidworth Community Area was asked to consider taking on a similar volunteer project.
On Saturday 6th February, The Chute Parish Council’s held a public exploratory meeting, supported by Community Engagement Manager, Marc Read and Senior Rights of Way Officer Nick Cowen.
With 21 members of the public in attendance, Marc Read & Nick Cowen explained Wiltshire’s Council’s position, and the work that had happened in other community areas and invited the community for there thoughts on making something similar work in The Chutes.
After a question and answer session, the group decided that this was very much a project worth exploring and agreed the first step was to audit their paths and identify key locations, where work should or could be undertaken.
The group will be meeting again once this initial survey work has undertaken, to discuss the next steps for this fantastic community project.
If you want to get involved or want to see something similar happening in your area, contact Marc Read on 01722 434557 or firstname.lastname@example.org
