THE launch of a draft neighbourhood plan for Leominster is to take place next Thursday (July 31).

It is an opportunity for members of the public to find out more about the plan and to discuss it with members of the steering group.

Councillor Peter Ellis has been leading the Leominster Area Neighbourhood Plan (LANP) which he said was set up to give local residents an opportunity to express their opinions on the development in the town and parish over the next 20 years.

The open meeting will be held at Grange Court between 6pm to 8pm and tea, coffee and soft drinks will be provided.
