Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan

After conducting research and consulting with the community, Eynsham Parish Council has produced a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish.

This sets out a number of planning policies and the following vision for the future:

‘Our vision for the Parish of Eynsham at the end of the plan period (2031) is that both new and existing residents will be enjoying the same benefits of living in the village as current residents do and that the area will be an even more attractive community in which to live and work.’

An initial version of Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan was submitted for independent examination in 2017 and the examiner recommended that this first version of the plan shouldn't go to referendum. The Parish Council has reviewed and updated Neighbourhood Plan and this was consulted on for 6 weeks unti 28 February 2019. The Neighbourhood Plan and consultation responses can be viewed below.

The Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan has now been examined by an Independent Examiner and their report, received on 23 July 2019, found that 'Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan does, subject to the recommended modifications, meet the basic conditions'. The detailed report can be viewed below:

A referendum on Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan will take place on 30 January 2020, as set out in the Regulation 18 Decision Statement below:
