Revised NDP Submitted to SODC

The revised Neighbourhood Development Plan has been submitted to South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC).  The revised plan will replace the previous version, adopted in October 2017.

SODC invites comments on the revised plan and supporting documents during a six-week publicity period which will run until 5pm on Thursday 13th December 2018.

You can view the Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents here.

Hard copies are available to view at The Plough Inn, 24 High Street, Long Wittenham, OX14 4QH between 12 noon and 11pm Monday to Sunday.

The documents are also available to view at South Oxfordshire District Council’s office, 135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Abingdon, OX14 4SB between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am and 4.30pm on Fridays.

How to comment

You are encouraged to use SODC’s online questionnaire which is available at:

Responses can also be made by:

  • emailing
  • writing to South Oxfordshire District Council at the above address
  • completing a comment form (available at the above venues) and posting or emailing it back to us

Please note: as the neighbourhood planning process includes an independent examination, your name and address are required for your comments to be considered.  The majority of examinations are expected to be through written representations, however the examiner will decide whether there is a need for a public examination.

When making your comments, you can state your views on this and the reasons for the request.  You can also request to be notified of our final decision to adopt the Long Wittenham Neighbourhood Plan.

How your personal details will be used

Responses to the publicity period will be forwarded to the independent examiner.  This will include comments, names and contact details and is required by Part 5, Regulation 17 of the Town and Country Planning (Neighbourhood Planning) Regulations 2012.  SODC has received assurance that the data will be kept securely and not used for any other purpose.

The examiner will retain the data until after it is decided whether or not to adopt the plan and the deadline for a Judicial Review has passed.  This is six weeks after a decision notice has been published.  SODC will hold the data for up to six years after a decision notice has been published.

Representations submitted by individuals will be published on the SODC website alongside their name.  No other contact details will be published.  Representations submitted by businesses or organisations will be published in full, including contact details.  If you would like to know more about how we use and store your data, please visit

If you have any queries or require any of the documents in an alternative format, please email or call 01235 422600.
