From the Chairman
I very much look forward to meeting up with you at the end of this month - it’s been a long old drag and lack of genuine social engagement between Members has been sorely missed.
Projects aimed at enhancing the appeal of our heritage market town progress with the development of arrangements for a continuing maintenance programme for all the Town’s plaques and information boards. The complete refurbishment of the distinctive All Saint’s Church Sun Dial information board has now been executed and will be re-installed imminently. The project for floodlighting our Medieval Churches continues and a survey of St. John’s is being arranged with the group of technical experts who have advised on All Saint’s, St. Michael’s and St. Mary’s. Concept proposals for the further enhancement of the Sheepmarket area including the ‘entrance’ to Horseshoe Lane are to be submitted to the District Council.
Stamford Conservation Area planning matters
We continue to contribute to the debate locally and nationally on the new proposed ‘fast track’ Planning System stressing the importance of adequate time for community involvement at the very early planning stages.
