Just wanted to say thank you on behalf of all of those that attended the training session yesterday. I have had nothing but fantastic feedback – so thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. You have inspired the committee to move things forward and use the opportunities to make a difference to our town and surrounding wards.

Aylesbury Town Council

Within 5 days of the initial presentation I had meddled in a Planning Application that County Highways had refused to comment on. We as a Parish Council secured from the Applicant a solution to a problem that had plagued both ourselves and the County Highways for 20 years.  The work is now well under way – problem half solved and work progressing.  In the meantime, from the benefits we had already secured, compounded by the further work we have done, I am now inundated with requests for help and advice from neighbouring parishes!!  

Richard H Chatham   Chair Stoke Orchard and Tredington Parish Council.

 Your analysis in the morning was spot-on.  It made me realise how much communities disadvantage themselves by not acting as soon as rumours of proposed development start to emerge!

Your input and support has been very much appreciated and the difference you have made is acknowledged.  I very much enjoy working with you and learning/gaining knowledge particularly on planning development issues.

Andrew Tubb, Chief Executive Officer, Cirencester Town Council

I felt that the organisation and chairing of the consultations by Andrea Pellegram to be just right – everyone had a chance to contribute and chose to be brief and to the point.  I felt that the consultation events were very positive with very valuable contributions from many local people.
