Initial public consultations on the Ten Year Plan for St Helena have now come to a close. Over twenty community events were held across the Island – with around 100 people expressing their views on priorities for St Helena.
If members of the public were unable to attend any participation event they can still contact Tom Holvey, at the Castle, to express their views on priorities for the Plan. Tom can be contacted on tel: 22470 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Work will now begin between SHG officials and Councillors to pull together a draft document to be presented to the public in the coming months. There were many ideas and views expressed throughout the process, with better communications from government, increasing prosperity and making the most of the Island’s assets being key themes raised.
SHG would like to thank all those who took the time to attend a meeting or to give their views in other ways. Further public meetings with be scheduled to discuss the draft plan.
Councillor Brian Isaac said:
“I was glad to see that many of the meetings were so well attended. The level of contribution from Islanders was of such a high standard and we heard so many great ideas which Councillors will now work with government officials to pull together into a plan.”
