NEWS UPDATE – 15 January 2017

We plan to hold a Village Meeting to discuss our Draft Neighbourhood Plan on 3rd February at 7pm in the Parish Hall. See further information here

Benson as a community needs your support to define the future of our village. Our Neighbourhood Plan is nearly complete and we aim to submit it to SODC in February.

What are we asking you to do?

  • Join us in Benson Parish Hall at 7pm Friday 3 February
  • Hear how the Neighbourhood Plan has progressed and what is being proposed
  • Give us your views on our proposals
  • Above all we need your support to ensure the Neighbourhood Plan is adopted and carries weight in future planning decisions

Come along to the Parish Hall and encourage neighbours to come too. We need to complete the Benson Plan so we can take back some control of housing in our village! See the flyer here for further information on the event and the process.


Meeting format

  • 6.45pm – Doors open – feel free to view the information boards before the presentation
  • 7pm – Presentation by the Benson Plan Team on current progress
  • 7.45pm – 8.30pm – Open Forum Q&A session. The Benson Plan Team will answer any questions you might have
  • 8.30pm – 9pm – View the information boards and fill in a feedback form. Give us your views, we want to hear them.

We look forward to seeing you on the 3rd February (refreshments will be available – first glass of wine is free).
