Thank you to everyone who attended the consultation meetings to discuss the Neighbourhood Plan Consultation Draft – Indicative Policy Areas and Proposals, particularly those who braved the snowy conditions on Thursday evening. Although the bad weather undoubtedly affected the numbers attending on Thursday, over the two events more than 100 residents and local business people came to voice their opinions on the draft proposals and policies. All the comments made at the two events, together with any comments made in person to members of the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, the Parish Council, via email or social media, along with all the returned questionnaires, will be passed to Planning Aid England (PAE) for their analysis. The last date for the return of questionnaires is Sunday 15th February 2015. The results of PAE’s analysis should be known by the end of March and will inform the future direction of the Neighbourhood Plan. Anyone who has an interest in helping to shape the future of Oxspring by joining the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would be most welcome.
