The Hadleigh Steering Group was formed in January 2014 - initially as a pilot scheme to help bring co-ordination, leadership and greater consensus to the many opportunities and issues that will contribute to the growth development and sustainability of Hadleigh as a vibrant and important local centre. The Group provides a focal point for public bodies, the Town Council, business and others to be able to develop plans, take soundings, receive recommendations to ensure progress is more expedient in the future.
Although not having decision making powers, the Steering Group can play a valuable part of the decision making process by adding value through its co-ordination and leadership role. As opportunities come forward (through a variety of mechanisms and organisations) they will be channelled through the Steering Group for a focussed approach to gathering and shaping views. The current Chair is Councillor Kathryn Grandon.
