We work hard to support neighbourhood planning groups across the district in preparing their neighbourhood plans and provide support for towns and parishes in achieving their vision through developing the right objectives and policies.
Since January 2020, we have experienced a number of ‘firsts’ for the district. We have had our first request for the designation of a neighbourhood forum in the parish of Shellingford, and Great Coxwell is the first in the district to start the process of reviewing their made neighbourhood plan.
Unfortunately, due to COVID, Shrivenham - which was due to go to referendum in March, had to be delayed until 2021. But we will work with the parish to undertake the referendum, as soon as it is possible to do so safely.
Also, Cumnor recently undertook their regulation 14 pre-submission consultation and they, alongside Appleton with Eaton and West Hanney, are working towards submitting their neighbourhood plans.
