Charlbury Neighbourhood Plan - potential development sites
A Neighbourhood Plan is being produced by the Charlbury Neighbourhood Form, a group of volunteers, with the support of the Town Council.
This Plan, when adopted, will be a legal document forming part of the framework used to determine whether planning applications should be approved or not. It therefore provides an important opportunity for the community to influence future development within the town.
An important objective is to secure greater control over the type, mix, tenure and location of housing in the town, in order to meet local needs. To do this we need to consider including sites for development within the Plan rather than relying solely on applications from potential developers. As you may have seen in the Chronicle and local press, we have therefore issued an invitation to landowners to let us know of land they wish to put forward for consideration in the Neighbourhood Plan, whether for residential or other uses.
We are holding an open session on Saturday 10 June, 10 - 12 in the Corner House, to give residents the opportunity to learn more and to comment on the criteria by which sites will be assessed. The final Neighbourhood Plan will need to be supported by the town in a referendum, so we are keen to have involvement and comments from as many people as possible. There will also be opportunities to comment on any sites selected later on in the process.
