“Community Lincs have been a really good organisation to work with during the development of our Neighbourhood Plan, they have been clear about the community consultation process and has worked with us to get the best results through our community consultations. A wide range of staff have very effectively contributed towards the consultations, producing good visually interesting flyers and questionnaires, and excellent display boards for people to look at with clear messages and statements.”
