Neighbourhood Plan Inspection recommends plan should proceed to referendum
The submitted draft Charlbury Neighbourhood Plan 2031 has now been independently examined and the examiner has concluded that, subject to a series of recommended modifications, the submitted plan meets all the necessary legal requirements and should proceed to referendum.
WODC must now formally agree to accept the modifications and then arrange a referendum at which all registered electors within the parish of Charlbury will be eligible to vote for the adoption of the plan. If a majority of those voting agree, the plan will become a "made plan" and will inform the determination of planning applications within the parish.
The examiner's report can be viewed or downloaded, along with the submitted plan and other information about the examination on the Charlbury Neighbourhood Plan page of the WODC website at https://www.westoxon.gov.uk/planning-and-building/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning/charlbury-neighbourhood-plan/
