VOLUNTEERS are being sought to help create a neighbourhood plan for Malvern.

Malvern Town Council is committed to developing the plan which will determine where new housing will be built in the next 20 years as well as covering a wide range of issues, including health and wellbeing, leisure facilities and the environment.

The volunteers must be willing to commit their time to help the council consult local residents, community groups and businesses to discover their likes and dislikes about the town and their aspirations for its future.

The council will carry out a review of existing information, such as the local plan, the South Worcestershire Development PLan, social and demographic data, transport studies, conservation appraisals and environmental studies.

An adopted plan will also help secure funding from developers which can be ploughed back into supporting local projects.

For more information, call the town council on 01684 566667 or email mpiercy@malvern-tc.org.uk.
