North Hinksey Neighbourhood Plan

North Hinksey Parish Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan. The process empowers local communities to help direct and shape the way their area grows and develops into the future. A neighbourhood plan will form part of the development plan, which helps to determine planning applications.

What’s happening now?

North Hinksey Parish Council has submitted their neighbourhood plan to Vale of White Horse District Council.  We are now welcoming comments from the local community and statutory consultees during a six-week publicity period that runs from Wednesday 13 February and concludes at 5pm on Wednesday 27 March 2019. You can view the neighbourhood plan and supporting documents below:

To submit comments: 

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 North Hinksey 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. We have received assurance that the data will be kept securely and not used for any other purpose.

The examiner will retain the data until after we decide 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. Vale of White Horse District Council will hold the data for up to six years after a decision notice has been published.

Representations submitted by individuals will be published on our 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 

More information on the process is available on our Neighbourhood Planning home page. If you would like to discuss neighbourhood planning with a member of the team, please contact us.
