A 'refreshed' Neighbourhood Plan
Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan was made in 2020, however we are mindful that some Local Green Spaces remain in need of adopting, current policies require bringing up to date and the period of the plan is to be in alignment with West Oxfordshire District Council's emerging Local Plan to 2041. Eynsham Parish Council is working with Community First Oxfordshire on the Neighbourhood Plan refresh and documents will be made available on this page to support the ongoing work.
A Neighbourhood Plan engagement event took place on Wednesday 22 November 2023 at the Village Hall. Thank you to those who attended. The draft Neighbourhood Plan Policies are available here. These are themed into five groups as follows:-
