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.
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,
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
