• Aims: This is an opportunity to network for all group members, while exploring issues that are deeply relevant for the local community, such as planning, transport, climate initiatives, integration, county development, community wellbeing and more.
  • Membership: Membership open to active members of DLR PPN membership groups only. DLR PPN members can join one, several or all linkage groups as they wish.
  • Frequency of meetings: Linkage groups have quarterly meetings each year. In 2021, we will organise 3 meetings for each linkage group.  Frequency of meetings can be reviewed as the need arises – with an aim to have 3 per annum as a minimum.
  • Communication: We will have a separate email list for each all linkage group, which we will use to send updates, reports and invitations to meetings.
