Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan


WALLINGFORD NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN 

Along with volunteers from the local community, Wallingford Town Council is preparing a neighbourhood plan.  The Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan (WNP) will influence development in Wallingford from the time the plan is adopted until 2034.  The plan will give residents and business owners the opportunity to influence the future development and land use in Wallingford, ensuring the community gets the right types of development, in the right place. 


PUBLIC CONSULTATION

Opens Friday 30th August – closes Sunday 20th October

The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, made up of local volunteers and town councillors, is seeking your views on the final draft of the Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan. The Council has been working on the Plan for four years and many people have already given their thoughts and ideas.  This is the final opportunity to share your thoughts before the Plan is submitted to South Oxfordshire District Council for Examination.

The Plan is for the period up to 2034 and it sets out objectives and policies against which planning applications for new housing, employment and other development will be assessed so that the impacts the proposals have on the town's green spaces, historic environment and community assets are controlled as far as possible for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors.

South Oxfordshire District Council also require that the Plan identify land for new homes and employment use and the Plan is proposing to allocate site E at Winterbook for 502 homes and 3.1 Hectare of employment land off Lester Way at Hithercroft.  Planning applications have already been made on both these sites.
