What is the Thatcham Vision project?
The short answer is that the project is developing a picture of the future of Thatcham which will influence decisions about the town and drive actions aimed at achieving improvements to the community's wellbeing.
A slightly longer answer (based on Thatcham Vision's constitution) is thatThatcham Vision is a non-profit making organisation run by people who live in or use Thatcham. Its aims are to identify needsand opportunities for the benefit of the parish of Thatcham, and to identify and take actions (and encourage others to do the same) that will benefit people and the environment of Thatcham.
Who is involved in the Thatcham Vision project? Well, we're really hoping that it will be you! The main ways in which you can get involved are to:
- Join one of the topic teams which are being set up to look at areas which aren't covered in the initial action plan - these are likely to cover topics like health and wellbeing, education, and leisure;
- Join one of the action teams which are implementing the community led projects included in our list of 100 actions and projects included in the first action plan;
- Become a member of the Thatcham Vision Board which will coordinate furture work on the development, implementation and resourcing of the Vision.
