Fabian Brökelmann from Amersfoort in The Netherlands is fact finding about our sustainability efforts in Ashton Hayes this week. Fabian is involved in Research for the Dutch 'Raad voor het Openbaar Bestuur' (an advisory council/board on public government/authorities - issues for the Dutch Government) about the facilities and conditions for communities to accept responsibilities instead of the authorities. He is particularly keen on how communities embark and succeed in 'self determination'. Thanks to all the residents who have spared time to talk to Fabian. Ashton Hayes is a member of the Communities of Sustainable Europe, which is how Fabian heard about us.
