Progress with MAPP and we won the Lottery( well a £10k bid!)

We have played a leading role in MAPP, and helped to achieve, a new process of earlier and wider consultation with the Council. We have had significant meetings with senior officers in MBC and  will be having regular meetings with others. We also insight into the newly created Local Planning Action Group. One of our MAPP members had an appeal upheld by the Information Commissioners Office and we have met senior Council officers to take this forward.

We are very keen to gain more membership in ourGreenways and to do more for our local community in Nunthorpe and Marton, whilst continuing to work across the town through MAPP.  Nunthorpe Parish Council – we are grateful for a small grant from the Parish Council which provided useful support pending a response on our Lottery application.

The Lottery bid was  successful!! Its a very pleasing result for a project that will last for a year from 29th October . We are looking to set up at least three  green activities events and  some enduring infrastructure for green, environmental and health and well being activities.

We will be having a further consultation event  about the details with leaders of community organisations, Councillors, Schools,  and so on, in November followed by a wider consultation with residents from across the whole of Nunthorpe.

Please continue to support us on Facebook or email info@ourgreenways.org  , and suggest ideas. We do need volunteers  to help us in small ways too please.
