The Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan is hosting an open day on Saturday 21st January 2017, in the Regal Centre, Wallingford.

30th November 2016 - Focused call for sites 

The Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan (WNP) will be undertaking a ‘focused called for sites’ from Monday 5th December 2016 to Sunday 8th January 2017.

This is a request to the local community to identify any new potential development sites within the neighbourhood plan boundary that could be considered for housing, economic (employment) land, education, health and community facilities. 

Anyone is welcome to submit a site that is 0.2 hectares or larger providing that they have permission from the owner. However, this is only for new potential sites and not those already submitted to South Oxon District Council.

If you or someone you know has a potential development site that might be suitable we would like to hear from you.  Full details, including a submission form and FAQ, can be downloaded here



15th November 2016 - Working Groups

The past month has seen some changes amongst the Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan Working Groups, with Housing and Development merging with Local Environment, Health and Education. The merger was agreed due to the large number of commonalities between the group and to help share resources.

The Working Groups are in the process of drafting policies for the plan. The polices must be supported by evidence, so evidence gathering is also a key part of this stage. Once all of the Working Groups have drafted their policies a public consultation will be held to give the public a chance to comment on the objectives and policy options.


30th September 2016 - Forming policies 

On Saturday 24th September all of the members of the Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan Working Groups;Economy and Employment; Housing and Development;Leisure, Town Centre and Amenities;Local Environment, Health and Education; Transport and Movement met with our neighbourhood planning consultants, Nexus.

This was to enable Nexus to review the visions and objectives of each working group, developed over the last three months, and was also the starting point for formulating these into policies for potential inclusion in the plan. 



14th July 2016 - Working Groups update

The Working Groups have been meeting regularly and are making good progress developing visions and objectives for the plan.

The next stage in the process will be for the Steering Group, along with planning consultants Nexus, to review these visions and objectives and formulate how they can be translated into policies. The policies will then be submitted for public consultation and, subject to feedback, will be fed into a first draft of the Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan.



21st June 2016 - Working Group meeting

On Tuesday 21st June, Wallingford Town Council and Nexus Planning hosted a meeting, for the volunteers of the Wallingford Neighbourhood Plan Working Groups. 

Over the course of the next three months, the Working Groups will be meeting regularly to set clear visions, achievable objectives and policies to be considered for inclusion in the plan.
