Wantage Town Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan to influence the way their area grows and develops into the future.
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 town council is reviewing their draft plan before it carries out further consultation. Another independent examination will then be required.
More information on the process is available on our Neighbourhood Planning Resources page.
