Green Light Festival Open Coordination Meeting Tuesday 24th January – ALL WELCOME!

5pm for 5.30 start – the Blue Room in Queens Building of De Montfort University (on the first floor of Queens Building, at the end of the wobbly glass walkway then it’s the door on the right opposite the ladies toilets – call if you get lost!).

We, the organisers of the budding new Green Light Festival of Sustainability, would like to extend to you an invitation to join one of our core group meetings. With only three months till the big day (Sat 31st March), we’ve lots of exciting things to do and dreaming to distribute between our somewhat humble team of organisers.

We’ve drawn up a list of things we’d love to happen, and we’re open to suggestions from people who might be able to contribute in an organisers’ capacity. So if you’ve got the skills and the interest to help us out a bit, please come along and see what we’ve been up to and what’s ahead!

Call Jessie on 07969256046 or email jessicamarycooke@yahoo.co.uk to let us know you’d like to attend or for more information. Look forward to seeing you there!

Following the adoption of the Core Strategy by the Council on 25th

Allocations and Development Management Policies Development Plan Document.

The document will need to be consistent with the Core Strategy and show
how the Core Strategy will be implemented and delivered by allocating
sites for development and designating land for particular uses.

It will allocate sites for a range of uses such as housing, green space,
employment and transport and also contain policies for the use and
development of sites.

The ‘Call for Sites’ is the first stage of production of this document .
It is an opportunity for you to suggest land or buildings in Leicester for
development or change to alternative uses. Continue reading
