Appointment of KRA Chairman
The KRA is very pleased to announce that Des Camblin has been elected by the KRA Committee to the position of Chairman.
Des Camblin is a surveyor by profession and has lived in Kingswood for twelve years. He has been a member of the Committee for ten years and takes a particular interest in planning issues. He was a member of the working party which sought to ensure that the BBC site in the Warren was redeveloped on a basis which was appropriate for the area and more recently chaired a working party which worked with the Council to establish a Planning Brief for the Kingswood Station site which reflected residents' views.
In his acceptance, Des advised that his immediate aims are to enable the KRA and community to work with the Council to define Kingswood for upcoming planning policies and to modernise the KRA's constitution.
Developing Planning Policies in Kingswood
In response to some serious concerns about local planning issues, Councillor Joan Spiers undertook to organise a meeting at the Town Hall for a number of invited persons from Kingswood to attend a special workshop with Councillors and Senior Planning Officers to discuss Kingswood planning issues on 27th February.
We were presented with an outline of the planning process and then invited to form groups to give our views on a number of critical planning issues. The meeting was useful to gather local opinion and the Council has since prepared notes of this meeting, and these are attached here for your information.
Additionally the Council have prepared a document – Planning in Kingswood – available to view here.
We very much value your feedback on these notes, to help the KRA and the Council to develop and customise a more distinctive local approach to Kingswood planning policies.
Our sincere thanks go to our local Councillors Joan Spiers, Simon Parnall and Ros Mill who all participated in the meeting and also to the Senior Planning Officers who gave their time to organize and attend this evening meeting.
