The steering group, which is a mix of villagers and Parish Councillors, has made good progress since the last report
Following the December/January consultation period for villagers and other stakeholders (such as CDC, the utilities, Oxfordshire County Council, etc) we will now take on board all their comments and prepare the final submission of the Plan to be ratified by the Parish Council at their March 28 meeting
From there, the process is:
- We submit the final agreed Plan to CDC, who validate that we have submitted all the correct documentation.
- They then put it out to a further 6 week public consultation and they receive all the responses back.
- They then submit it to an independent examiner – who we get to choose
- Subject to the examiner approval, CDC then organise a Referendum.
- If it passes the Referendum the Plan is adopted by CDC as part of their Local Plan
The headline objectives of the Adderbury Neighbourhood Plan remain.
Since we started this process, 180 new homes have been given approval in Adderbury and therefore this Plan does not make provision for any more new homes outside of a residential settlement boundary, and we propose clear buffers from Banbury and other villages
It is important to note that some of the earlier issues raised by villagers, around such topics as traffic reduction, education and transport, cannot be included in what is essentially a land use planning document, and these will be addressed in a future Parish Plan prepared by Adderbury Parish Council.
