Shrivenham Neighbourhood Plan

Shrivenham 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? 

Shrivenham Parish Council has submitted its draft neighbourhood plan to Vale of White Horse District Council. We are inviting comments on the plan and supporting documents during an extended publicity period, which normally runs for six weeks, but due to summer holidays is running from Tuesday 6 August to 5pm on Tuesday 1 October 2019.

You can view the neighbourhood plan and supporting documents below:

Paper copies of the above documents are available to view in the Barrington Room at the Memorial Hall, Highworth Road, Shrivenham SN6 8BL during the hours of 9am - 9pm, Monday to Sunday.

The neighbourhood plan and supporting documents are also available to view and in an alternative format, both on request, at VOWHDC’s office,135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, Milton, OX14 4SB between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am and 4.30pm on Fridays. Visitor parking is available. If you wish to arrange this, please email or call 01235 422425.

Next steps

After the publicity period ends, your comments, name, email and postal address will be sent to an independent examiner to consider. The opportunity for further comments at this stage would only be at the specific request of the examiner.  

Most neighbourhood plans are examined without the need for a public hearing. If you think the neighbourhood plan requires a public hearing, you can state this in your comments, but the examiner will make the final decision.

Please clearly state in your comments if you wish to be notified of our decision on whether we formally adopt the neighbourhood plan.

All personal data will be held securely by the council and examiner in line with the Data Protection Act 2018. Comments submitted by individuals will be published on our website alongside their name. No other contact details will be published. Comments submitted by businesses or organisations will be published in full, including contact details.
