Eye & Dunsden Parish Council has been working on a Neighbourhood Plan (NP) through an appointed Steering Group, comprising of residents from across the Parish.
An NP is a locally-created and influenced statutory development plan that if approved and adopted, South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC), as Planning Authority for the Parish, has to have regard to when considering future planning applications.
The draft of the NP is now ready to be shared with residents and businesses living and operating within the Parish as well as with statutory consultees through a public consultation. This process is known as the pre-submission consultation and is conducted according to Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations.
The Regulation 14 consultation period for the draft NP will be open from 00:01am on Friday 1 December 2023 until 11.59pm on Friday 12 January, 2024.
Leaflets providing information about the draft NP and the consultation process, including why it is important to take part, have been delivered to each household and business in the Parish. If you did not receive one and would like to, copies are available at the locations below so please feel free to pick one up.
