Kibworth Public Consultation Event

Kibworth Public Consultation Event

The two Kibworth Parish Councils would like residents of the two Kibworths to give them their initial views on some of the background work on 3 exciting projects to improve facilities and services for both communities. These have been progressing over the past 2 years under lockdown.

Amongst the items we want to consult with residents are:

  • The Open Spaces Strategy which presents some new design ideas and facilities in the five current park areas for which the two parish councils have responsibility. Once finalised, any agreed improvements will be implemented in stages, as and when finances become available, and will be consulted on again;
  • Concept plans for a new Community Hub at the Grammar School Hall, backed by a detailed Needs Assessment. This might include providing a new home for the Kibworth Community Library. It is intended that the renovated and extended building would be able to better support the wider needs of all the community, and be a hub for many support services, and as it is conceptual the public will of course be consulted again;
  • The Neighbourhood Plan (refresh version) which has been updated to ensure it is compliant with the latest District Local Plan and National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). this can be read/downloaded from both parish council websites and found under Planning.

The opportunity for Kibworth residents to see and comment on these projects will be on Sunday 26 September in the Kibworth Grammar School Hall from 10am until 3pm. Councillors and others will be there to respond to your questions. There is no need to book, just turn up! Please come along and help us plan for the future of our community. We may need to control numbers so as not to have too many in the hall at any one time Please observe safe distancing. Sanitiser and paper towels will be available.

Information will also be shared on the two parish council social media channels.
