How to respond to the Local Plan (deadline 21st November)

We’re calling on all Chatteris residents who care about Wenny Meadow to tell Fenland District Council that this space should be taken off the list of development sites. This can be done in the following ways:

  • Email the council directly, before 21st November 2019 using the following email address: localplan@fenland.gov.uk
  • Nominate the meadow to be designated as Local Green Space using Form_C (below) in the revised Fenland Local Plan.  Please download and complete the form, then email it to the above address before the 21st November 2019.  (We have adapted Fenland District Council’s version of the forms to include a map of the meadow.)
  • Visit Hatters Café in Chatteris from 10:30 to 4:30 on Wednesday 13th November when members of the campaign will be holding a drop-in session. They will hand out paper copies of Form C and guide people through completing it.

All the background information on the “Fenland Local Plan, Issues and Policies” can be found here.  (Form A on the Fenland Local Plan website can also be used for feedback, but it is very long and complicated. The campaign recommends that people using this form focus on questions 25 and 27 which are most relevant to the meadow.)

This consultation period is a crucial phase in the Save Wenny Road Meadow campaign. Please contact the council if you possibly can!

PS We understand that both the pdf and word versions of the council’s forms are very difficult to use if you have an Apple set-up, especially if you’ve upgraded to “Catalina”. Best solution is to print and complete manually, unless you can install an app to allow editing in Word. Good luck!
