NDP Open Day – October 2021

Cold Ash Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) Steering Group hosted an event in the Acland Hall on the 23rd October 2021. It was a drop-in event at which we shared the current status of our NDP and asked for Parishioner feedback.

Photo Competition

In the months leading up to the event we asked parishioners to submit photographs of our wonderful parish. We wanted photos that captured our beautiful landscapes, historic buildings, parish values, and village charm for use in the final NDP document.

We offered some great prizes for the winning photos:

  • For the best judged overall photograph:
    A chance to see our wonderful parish from the air! A wonderful adventure flight in a light aircraft for up to 3 people (the winning photographer plus 2 guests) around and over the parish taking off from west London.
  • For the best runners up in the Junior and Senior age groups:
    A £50 Amazon gift voucher each!
