Neighbourhood Plan Update

Since the Pre-Submission Consultation Documents were published in July last year, the NP Steering Committee has received a lot of feedback from both residents and statutory consultees.  In particular feedback was received from South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) suggesting that some of the policies were not robust and could be open to challenge.  The plan has been amended to reflect this feedback.

The amended plan and accompanying documents can be viewed here.
