Perry Riding – support for planning application

RDA logo for Perry Riding

 

 

 

Numerous attempts over the past eight years to locate a suitable site to build a new sustainable centre where the Perry Group can be guaranteed a future and many other groups and individuals can benefit.

A planning application has now been lodged for a site kindly put forward by the Willey Estates in Much Wenlock. Full details are available on the Shropshire council planning web page, and there are more details on the new Cavalier Centre website by clicking here.

If you would like to show your support please do so by lodging a supporting comment on the planning site, with a plan to gather 2,000 if possible. It involves registering first and then being e mailled back. It is a little time consuming but will be invaluable to the cause if you and any friends and supporters can spare the time to do it:

Go to www.shropshire.gov.uk and on the home page look at the column on the left and click on Environment and Planning.

You will next see a page with three main headings – Planning, Environment, Recycling and Rubbish.

Go to the Planning list and at the top Click on Online Planning Register.

The next page invites you to find or comment on an application.  Complete the Text Box with 14/02127/FUL and enter. Then follow the simple instructions to leave comments and I hope your SUPPORT for the application.

Consultation on activities for young people in Shropshire

Shropshire Council logoShropshire Council and its partners are considering how to best shape and provide activities in the future for young people aged 10 to 19 and up to 25 for those with learning disabilities.

Public services are changing with more emphasis on working in local communities. There is also more emphasis on involving young people in developing services. Shropshire Council and its partners want to make sure that as many young people as possible can take part in youth activities in their own area. Shropshire Council believes that youth activities should be enjoyable and useful to young people’s development.

By youth activities Shropshire Council mean things to do outside of school, at the weekends and in the holidays. For example; activities like youth clubs, sports/games clubs, art activities, Scout activities and many others.

Seeking the views of a broad range of interested parties is a critical part of this. Shropshire Council want to hear from young people, their parents & carers, existing & potential providers (in-house and external), activities staff & volunteers, Shropshire Council members, and others that the Council work with in partnership.

To respond to this consultation and to find out further information please click on the following link:

The consultation will close on the 31st March 2014.

The Perry Riding Group – new centre study

As well as horse related opportunities they are also looking to create a specialist outdoor activity playground, an indoor soft play area and training kitchens to support skills development.

The Perry Riding, Driving & Vaulting Group would appreciate your time in completing their questionnaire. For further information about the proposed new ‘Cavalier Centre’ and to complete the questionnaire please click here.
