Public consultation on Chippy Neighbourhood Plan

town hallToday saw the start of a six week-long consultation period for a new Chipping Norton Neighbourhood Plan.

The vision for the neighbourhood plan is set out in a new document, entitled Chipping Norton: Looking Back, Stepping Forward. The document lists objectives such as local economy, transport, housing, health, wellbeing and education, and environment.

Chippy residents’ views are being sought on the report, so that they can be taken into account in a new Neighbourhood Plan, which will look at the future of Chippy’s development up to 2029.

A leaflet summarising the Chipping Norton: Looking Back, Stepping Forward document is being distributed to all Chippy households (it is supposed to be delivered on the same day the consultation starts, although not all households have yet received it). A full version of the report is also available online here.

Hard copies of the main document can also be found at the library, Post Office, GP surgeries, the Guildhall (both the Town Council office and the Information Centre), the hospital, and the Saturday morning information centre in the Lower Town Hall.

Comments on Chipping Norton: Looking Back, Stepping Forward need to be received by 15 September – by email to chippingnortonnp [at] gmail [dot] com or by post to Chipping Norton Neighbourhood Plan, The Guildhall, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire OX7 5NJ.

Mayor Chris Butterworth said, “The Town Council is keen to hear your views on this report so it can ensure the [neighbourhood] plan reflects what you want from your town up to 2029.”

The comments received will help inform the development of a draft Neighbourhood Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan was covered in the summer edition of Chippy News; our September edition, due out at the start of the month, will look further at Chipping Norton: Looking Back, Stepping Forward and the public consultation.
