Draft Neighbourhood Plan (June 2015)
The draft plan is the first opportunity for the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group to consult on the emerging policies and proposals of the Plan. The contents of this Draft Plan are therefore presented to obtain the views of the local community and other organisations on the vision, objectives and policies of the Plan.
The consultation period lasted from 22 June to 17 July and we received more than a 1,000 comments.
It's an exciting opportunity for Wantage; we hope you will take part in shaping our future.
The draft plan has been prepared based on work performed by volunteers in working groups and the detailed working papers and all the necessary background information on the Plan is available on our evidence page.
We have completed the consultation of the first draft of the Neighbourhood Plan and are now analysing the results. Once this informal consultation exercise is complete, the Town Council and the Steering Committee will review the comments made and prepare a version of the Plan, known as the ‘Pre-Submission Plan’. This document will be bigger and will include much more detail about our aspirations and the things that we need to do to make the vision real.
It will be published for a minimum six week period for formal comments by local people and other organisations.
Once that period is completed the very final version of the Plan will be completed and submitted to the VWHDC to arrange its independent examination and then the referendum when all the voters in Wantage have an opportunity to help us make these policies part of Planning Law.
