The Site B community engagement process has been wide ranging, accessible and transparent throughout, and participants have been able to make contact with the design team easily and access information through the John Thompson & Partners' website.
The key themes that have emerged through the process, including the character of Wallingford, the quality of the environment, benefits to Wallingford, infrastructure needs and aspirations, traffic and vehicular movement and preserving the separation with Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, have informed the design and layout of Site B.

Community Planning Day
11th July 2009
A Community Planning Day was held in July 2009. The event was an opportunity for local people to share their hopes and fears relating to the future growth of Wallingford. The second part of the day included a series of workshops where attendees were given the opportunity to work with the design team in expressing ideas for the enhancement of Wallingford and its existing residents and businesses. The team took these ideas away, and used them to develop initial proposals for Slade End Farm. These were first presented at a Report Back on 28th July 2009, and at a subsequent public exhibition on 15th September 2009 at The Regal Centre, Wallingford.
