Bolsover District Council has received an additional £95,800 to drive forward exciting digital citizen engagement plans as part of its recently launched Shirebrook Growth Plan.
Council leader Councilor Steve Fritchley said: “We continue to innovate as a council and I am pleased to report that our plans have caught the attention of government and that once again we have recognized as being at the forefront of digital planning. »
The funding will be used to bring virtual reality technology to Shirebrook so residents can ‘play’ with the master planning process, using this digital technology to get a feel for how developers plan their sites.
It will also allow residents to develop their own development proposals to see where to locate new housing, offices, schools, roads, green spaces and spaces for nature.
