West Hanney Parish Council

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

What’s happening now?

West Hanney Parish Council has submitted its draft neighbourhood plan to Vale of White Horse District Council.

We are carrying out a consultation which will run from Thursday 25 February to midnight on Thursday 15 April 2021. We would like to invite your comments on the submitted neighbourhood plan and supporting documents.

You can view the neighbourhood plan and supporting documents below:

Next steps

After the publicity period ends, your response will be sent to an independent examiner to consider. As the neighbourhood planning process includes an independent examination of the plan, your name, postal address and email (where applicable) are required for your comments to be considered by the examiner. 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. Further information on how we store personal data is provided in our privacy statement.
