"Planning for the future"

NEWS                                 September 15th, 2019

The Examiner for the Neighbourhood Plan has recommended that the modified NP proceed to referendum. This report has been published on the Cherwell website and is now published within the village.

This means that we have passed the Examination with some modification and are on our way to having a Neighbourhood Plan in place for a number of years. 


The written Plan needs to have the modifications completed and this work will be done between ourselves and Cherwell.  The documents will then go to the Cherwell Executive for discussion and approval. We hope this will occur on November 4th with their decision on November 8th, 2019.  If that process goes smoothly, the Elections and Democratic Office will organise a Referendum in the village.  The decison to accept the plan will rightfully be a village decision and will be a majority vote of those who cast a vote. 


As there has been some delay (one year) in getting to this stage, it is right that we have a 'refresher' of the policies within the NP.  We have a number of newcomers to the village for whom this document will be new and we hope to be able to host a meeting where we place the plan in a context that is useful and relevant.  

Below please find the Examiner's Report.  This copy of the report is modifications only plus comments and recommendations.  It will make more sense when the amended version is completed.  Any questions please contact the Parish Council and we'll explain items fully.
