Medina Yard update

We have received the following invitation from the developers:

Medina Yard Exhibition and Community Forum,

Tuesday 5 March 2013 Cowes Methodist Church, Birmingham Road, Cowes PO31 7BH

4.30-6.30pm – Public Exhibition of the Vision for Medina Yard

7.00-9.00pm – Medina Yard Community Forum

I am writing to invite you to the Exhibition of the Vision for Medina Yard and the first Medina Yard Community Forum on Tuesday 5 March. This is a change from the date of 7 March which we mentioned at the Community Planning Weekend Report Back presentation and I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We have changed the date to avoid a clash with a Cowes Town Council meeting.

At the Medina Yard Community Planning Weekend from 1-5 February participants expressed the desire to continue to be involved in the development of the proposals for the future of the site. In response to this, we are holding an exhibition of the emerging proposals from 4.30-6.30pm at Cowes Methodist Church. This will be followed by the Community Forum from 7-9pm. The Forum will be an opportunity for people to see a reduced version of the Vision for Medina Yard PowerPoint show presented on the Tuesday evening of the Community Planning Weekend, hear a project update and then take part in round table groups to discuss the emerging proposals for the site.
