A NATIONAL Park Authority is calling on the residents of Petersfield to help decide the town’s future for the next 15 years.

The South Downs National Park Authority has asked the people of the town to shape The Petersfield Plan – a unique strategy that will determine how it develops under national park laws.

Views are sought over future housing levels, transport, tourism and economy, environment, town centre plans and community facilities and services.

The day-long workshop takes place at The Petersfield School on Saturday, September 10 between 10am and 4pm.

Chris Paterson, a strategist for the park authority, said: ‘This is different, this is quite unique. We’re trying to do something that hasn’t been done before.’

There are spaces for 70 people at the workshop. To attend contact Helen Armes on 01908 666276.
