Bolsover District Council is set to move forward with its exciting plans for digital citizen engagement project following a £95,800 fresh funding.
As part of the recently launched Shirebrook Growth Plan, the council will bring virtual reality technology to Shirebrook and allow residents to understand the master-planning process and get a sense of how developers plan their sites. It will also allow users to come up with their own development proposals to see where to put new housing, roads, schools and green spaces, among others.
Council Leader, Coun Steve Fritchley said, “We continue to innovate as a council and I’m pleased to announce that our plans have caught the Government’s attention and that once again we have been recognised as being at the forefront of digital planning.”
“Now that we have been successful again in the PropTech Engagement Fund, we intend to explore the benefits of growth for investment in our local infrastructure and in our town and local centres and we will use the Government’s funding to ensure the people living and working in Shirebrook and Creswell get fully involved in shaping their futures.”
