Final Public Consultation 18 June to 31 July 2018

The Neighbourhood Plan process:

This public consultation is the final opportunity for parishioners, local businesses and other key stakeholders to provide feedback on the North Hinksey Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2031 and suggest changes to the policies and other content contained within the documentation below.

Following the consultation the Neighbourhood Plan Team will consider the feedback and, where appropriate, make final changes before the Plan is submitted to the District Council for consideration by an Independent Examiner.

The Independent Examiner may suggest further changes, but all things being well, the Plan should go to referendum later this year. At this point you will get an opportunity to vote on adopting the Plan, but will not be able to suggest any changes. The referendum is a simple yes / no vote.
