Timeline/News

We’ve created this page to show the progress of the project by “Timeline” of the main Key Milestones. From approval to proceed through to the target outcomes of a successful referendum and the “Making of the Plan”. There has been much work between milestones of community engagement, general publicity and meetings with interested individuals and groups.
