Selwood Garden Community – public consultation

Map of Selwood Garden CommunityLand Value Alliances (LVA) are currently hosting an online public consultation on the updated proposals for Selwood Garden Community.  This follows the initial vision consultation event held last December where members of the public shared comments and feedback on the proposals. More detailed technical work has since been undertaken and they are now asking local residents for their feedback on the updated plans.

To ensure many of the views of local residents are considered, Frome Town Council (FTC) will be holding three public meetings regarding the Selwood Garden Community consultation.  The aim of these meetings is to learn about the proposals, encourage discussion and share views and at the final  meeting, the Extraordinary Council meeting, Cllrs can agree and finalise their response back to LVA.  All three meetings will be held online via Zoom.

Wednesday 14th October, 7pm – 8:30pm – presentation of the proposals by Land Value Alliances

The purpose of this meeting is to help residents and interested parties understand and interpret the proposals. LVA will talk through the consultation boards and explain their reasons behind the development and their designs. There will be an opportunity to ask questions on the evening via the Q&A board, if you have a question in advance of the meeting, then please email this to jllewellyn@frometowncouncil.gov.uk.
