Community Participation Weekend, October 2019
The local community was invited to the Kendal Vision Community Participation Event to help shape a Vision for the future of the town. The event broadsheet can be seen here, the Report Back Presentation can be viewed in two parts - Community Planning section and Vision section.
The views of the local business community and residents are vital in shaping the Vision. The Community Participation Weekend was an opportunity to share local knowledge and contribute to shaping the new Vision through facilitated workshops, walkabouts and hands-on planning groups. There was also a background exhibition setting out local issues and opportunities.
Report Back Presentation, October 2019
After the public workshop days, the team analysed and summarised what the people of Kendal had considered. The consensus Vision was reported back at an evening presentation on Tuesday 8 October 2019.
The Vision for Kendal was published soon after. Packed full of images and illustrations, it reflects the views of the public, Kendal’s partners and stakeholders.
Kendal has much that is good that we can all be proud of. The Vision builds on the good to meet the challenges the town faces, including flooding, traffic, the affordability of housing and low numbers of the young to fill our jobs and schools.
Kendal Futures is a partnership that represents businesses and stakeholders. We wish to develop a bold Vision for the town, which will guide future decision making and change in Kendal.
The Vision sets out an exciting and compelling future for Kendal emphasising what makes the town unique and special.
The Vision for Kendal Community Participation Weekend is being facilitated by Farrer Huxley and supported by JTP on behalf of Kendal Futures.
