Wantage Neighbourhood Plan

Wantage Town Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan to influence the way their area grows and develops into the future.

What’s happening now?

The town council submitted a draft version of the plan to the district council in January 2016. An independent examination concluded in August 2016, however the report highlighted that many of the policies would not meet the basic conditions required for neighbourhood plans, and therefore recommended that the plan not proceed to referendum. The district council agreed with the examiner’s report and issued a decision notice.

The parish council recently ran the statutory pre-submission consultation on their reviewed draft plan, which ended on 14 July 2022. The local community and statutory consultees were invited to offer their comments on the draft neighbourhood plan. The parish council are reviewing comments received and making changes to the draft plan before formally submitting it to the district council.

Once the plan has been submitted, the district council will organise a further six-week publicity period, inviting comments from the public and statutory consultees.  All documents and comments received are then submitted for independent examination.
