Ideas and concepts of what Littleport could look like 20 years from now are being put up for public debate and scrutiny.

At the Village Hall on Sunday 27 June and Monday 28 June, local residents can see some of the options which may become part of the Littleport Masterplan and give their views on how their town can change, develop and grow over the next twenty years.

This work has already seen a huge amount of public support build for plans which area looking to develop the town in the future.

The plans for Littleport will look at improving the infrastructure in the town, how to build communities and green spaces in the local area.

Anyone coming along to the exhibition will be able to give feedback through questionnaires or directly to officers on the day.

Councillor Peter Moakes, Chairman of the Littleport MasterplanWorking Party, said: “Since we launched the Littleport Masterplan, we have received a huge amount of positive feedback from local residents. They have highlighted a number of areas from the site of a secondary school to a demand for better cycling routes and development for the riverside which we are now taking forward.

“The exhibition which will take place in the next week will ask residents to look at a range of ideas and concepts for areas which we can improve Littleport. It is really important that people come along and have their say – without feedback from the people who live and work in the town we cannot plan for the future which will meet your needs.”

The public exhibition will be open on Sunday 27th June from 11am – 4pm and Monday 28th June from 10am-7pm..
