Thank you everyone for coming along to our second exhibition on January 18th 2018, between 1800 and 2100 at the Village Hall in Silsoe!

It was at this exhibition that you got to meet the team and get a further update on the work that we have been doing, as well as having your say about what the next steps are. 

We were also able to tell you alittle bit more about the Gladman Enquiry currently taking place, at which Helen spoke about our progress on the Neighbourhood Plan and Village Design Statement.  We aim to be completed by the summer - certainly up to Referendum, so it was good to explain this to those interested parties!

There was a Facebook poll on to find out what you think about our draft Village Design Statement for Silsoe and 93% of you said you were happy with it, with more of you agreeing last night at the Exhibition.  We would still like to hear your views,so take a look and let us know if there is anything you would like to change by emailing Helen on  This will be included in the Neighbourhood Plan if villagers are happy with it, so find a copy of it here.  

Jon Balaam also attended last night on behalf of the Greensand Trust - he was looking for agreement to the proposed Landscape and Environment policies that may go into our Neighbourhood Plan.  You can find those here.  Please email him with any comments on

We look forward to hearing your views by 28th February 2018 so we can move forward to the next stage!
