Publication of Pevensey Parish Council plan

Pevensey Parish`Council, has written to the Pevensey Bay Journal today (26 February), to indicate the availability of their three year plan on their website.

Clerk, Sarah Mosedale said, “I would like to advise that PPC 3 Year Plan is now accessible on our website. Please see the link which takes you directly to plan. I will be adding this to the Councils FB page shortly. There will be limited number of hard copies available in the Clerks Office”.

The document is an extensive consideration of all matters related to the parish, over which the council has an input.

The document has seen at least six months work voluntary work by a number of councillors, and engagement with the community.

A well written questionnaire succeeded in engaging the attention of the community with a response rate of 21%.

As well as explaining the vision and objectives behind the document, details of the council responsibilities, their communications, the basis on which their small annual budget is expended, the budget for 2019—2020, links with other organisations, their activities and commitments, the local environment and questions related to transport and parking, there are also useful sections on our local heritage and history.

Simon Montgomery, editor of the Pevensey Bay Journal said today, this is a best practice document that is both unique in value to the community and in my opinion, is likely to become a template for action in our community.

“The vision, scope and detail is simply tremendous and all done by volunteer councillors.

“I simply can not praise this document enough and the Journal will be publishing the document, and no doubt returning time and again over the next three years to the content, to look at the reference points and benchmark the successes along the way.

“This document is a shining light and I honestly believe that what we see here is a new cornerstone of some description in the proceedings of Pevensey Parish Council.

“I even think that what is being done here could also becoming a guiding light for other parish councils in East Sussex”.

As clerk to the council. Sarah Mosedale has explained, a limited number of hard copies are to be made available in the Clerks Office. The office is based at the Ethel Wood Community Centre – 01323 743900 (staffed Mon to Thurs 8 – 12 noon minimum.) Other hours by arrangement.
