Planning for a better rural economy
Press Release: 29/09/2009
Businesses and landowners across the Winchester District are being invited to a planning event hosted by Winchester City Council on Thursday 22 October.
The event will explain more about the planning policies and processes affecting rural communities, as well as the grant funding possibilities.
Planners, landscape architects and historic environment officers from Winchester City Council have been invited to speak at the morning event which takes place at the YMCA’s headquarters at Fairthorne Manor near Curdridge. They will be outlining the opportunities available to rural businesses, and taking some of the mystery out of the planning system.
The event will end with a networking lunch, and an optional tour and explanation of the site’s wood fuel boiler. This new system allows the site to heat water and buildings in a sustainable way using local wood fuel.
