    Hi All, I have a concern here that someone may be able to help. We have set up a NHP Forum from which we have a Committee. WE applied for an initial £1500 and received £1350. This we have expensed most of it on a minimal website, three public presentations, two public surveys and associated printing costs.
    We are now preparing to submit funding for a Town Planner but find that these are charging the full amount of funding available. One even quoted £16950 which is above the funding limit. Has anyone been through this dilemma and can they offer advice?

    Hi All, I am Ed Greenwood and I am the Treasurer of our Neighbourhood Planning Committee. The primary aim of our NHP is the regenration of our area. The area has had little investment from local government and is currently suffering from gridlocked traffic flows. Whilst there is a plan to alleviate the traffic between the nearest major towns we are not convinced that it will be beneficial to us. We do not have a great deal of space for housing and have actually brought about a reduction in planned housing due the impending Local Plan which targeted Green Belt reduction.
