4. Discuss way forward for Torbrex Local Place Plan
◦ Ruth emailed the Local Development Plan (LDP) team to ask about the deadline for
submission of the community Local Place Plans (LPP). The response was 25th April
◦ Question over whether it’s worth submitting before then so that the council have time to
take our LPP findings into account. We need more research into the LDP schedule.
◦ We need to understand the difference between an LPP and a Community Action Plan.
◦ The new LDP will have a 10 year lifespan so it’s important we take this opportunity to
lodge an LPP.
◦ Once we have determined exactly what an LPP delivers, what we need to do to deliver
one, and a deadline then we can reach out to the community and see if we can get some
new subgroup members to help us.
◦ We might be able to attend more events at schools (or through the parent councils) to
communicate what we are trying to do and ask for feedback. We also need to do
engagement on local bodies like the hospital and police station.
