Project Blueprint Design Sessions

By 25th February 2015 No Comments

Project Blueprint is a community consultation process run by the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) for the people of Bridgwater and West Somerset – designed to make sure your voices are heard and views taken on board when it comes to the investment and development taking place in the local area.

As part of Project Blueprint, we are planning to hold design sessions throughout March. The aim of these sessions is to connect with people in the community to make sure they make the most of the opportunities and investment happening in the area over the next 10 years. The sessions will be a chance to have a say, come up with ideas and contribute to a plan… a blueprint… for projects that will connect people to new opportunities and make the community stronger. The ideas will be using and building on things that are already happening in the area but also help you to think about them differently. Being part of Project Blueprint development will mean you will:

  • Learn new skills and develop your talents along the way
  • Visit some exciting projects to see what is working elsewhere
  • Make a real difference in your community
  • We will provide food, coffee and some things to start the ideas rolling. The sessions are open to everyone and we want you to come along and share your thoughts.
