"Planning for the future"

"We are clear that local people - and local authorities must be at the heart of planning."

Eric Pickles, Former Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

"We're giving local people more power over what happens in their neighbourhoods - so communities can come together to keep pubs open, stop post offices from closing, run parks and take control over the look and feel of new developments in their area."

David Cameron, Prime Minister

News:  We have had comments from Cherwell Council on our draft Neighbourhood Plan. They have been short staffed so the process has taken longer than anyone wanted. 
The comments are thorough and very helpful. We expect that it will take a few weeks to make the suggested changes and also to scan the maps and drawings. 

We have decided to cancel the public Steering Group Meeting on Thursday, June 9th and use the time in small working groups. As you can imagine there is a lot of work being done by members of the Steering Group, most of whom are in full time employment. We want to maximize our time in order to have a final draft ready as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your understanding and support!

Welcome to the Weston on the Green Neighbourhood Plan website.  
 
The Parish Council has decided to prepare a Neighbourhood Plan which will then form part of Cherwell District Council's Local Plan 2011-2031.  It is hoped to complete the plan-making exercise by June 2016 after which it will be examined by the Council and an appointed examiner before a village referendum can take place. 

It is intended to be a holistic parish plan which addresses not only the need for development over the coming years but harnesses and structures that development to ensure that the parish benefits as a result. It is about protecting our historic and environmental assets for future generations and improving the quality of life for all who live and work in the Parish.

The plan-making exercise is formulated around three village consultation events specifically for you to make your views known.  These events are an opportunity for you to discuss the aspirations and concerns of our village. 

The first of these took place in October, with two separate sessions to accommodate as many people as possible. The villagers ideas and preferences expressed at the meeting are available on the Village meetings page under the Consultation tab. The second round of meetings are fixed for the 6th and 10th of February 2016.

Everyone is welcome to be involved in the process of formulating the Plan. If you are interested in joining any of the four task groups (for details see under the Neighbourhood Plan tab), please contact us and we will pass your details to the leader of the relevant group. 

Please look at the pages in this website as we have included information about the sub-groups, key dates, feedback from the consultation meetings and a tab for historical and reference material. You can also view this site on your mobile device.
