Striving to make Little Paxton a better place to live, work and play

Striving to make Little Paxton a better place to live, work and play

Earlier in the year, residents completed a survey questionnaire about all aspects of the village.

The survey was used as the basis to create the Community Led Plan which was adopted by the Parish Council on 6th September 2018.

The Parish Council has now formed a working party to progress the actions raised in the Plan.
