Littlemoor is a large estate on the outskirts of Weymouth. In the early stages we formed a steering group called 'Big 4 Littlemoor' and ran an enormous number of gatherings to encourage people to get involved and to find out how they would like to be consulted. These included a drop-in at the library, a cream tea at the sheltered housing complex, a coffee morning at the nursery and lots of fun activities at the youth centre.
We divided the issues up into the environment, community facilities/activities/advice, outdoor facilities and community safety. We organised events and activities around these themes in order to develop a vision and a plan of how we would like the community to develop over the next ten years. Littlemoor now has a working group of 14 people to make decisions on which to base our plans going forward.
