                   This event was advertised with a postcard delivered to each household as
                  well as numerous posters around the village and a large A frame poster
                  outside the village hall to remind people of the event or to tempt in passing
                  residents. Residents were given the opportunity to read the Scoping Report
                  as well as the Heritage Report. In addition there was a wide range of
                  information concerning all aspects of the NP displayed around the hall. Most
                  importantly a large number of the Steering Group were at hand to answer
                  questions, discuss progress and accept further views and comments.

                  address in the village, posters put up and the documents were put on the

                    Communications generally
                   A range of different media, as noted above, have been used by the Plan Steering
                  Group to inform their fellow Ickford residents about the neighbourhood plan
                  process and to seek their views about the right development for Ickford. The
                  Ickford Community website and the Vision for Ickford website have been used
                  at all times to give information and links to documents. For those residents who
                  prefer a paper copy of information this has been available in the Ickford Informer
                  on a monthly basis. At all times information has been presented neutrally with a
                  view to assisting villagers to reach their own opinion. Members of the Steering
                  group have tried their best to stay abreast of current developments in
                  Neighbourhood Plans as evidenced by attendance at a seminar at Reading
                  University as well as a further seminar in London. At all times the Group has
                  been assisted by the advice and guidance of Sally Chapman, an experienced planner
                  and neighbourhood plan consultant.
