The revised area designation covering only Baulking and Uffington parishes, was approved by the VOWH on 9 March 2017. The designation letter and map are attached below. The revised Terms of Reference for the Steering Group have been approved by Uffington Parish Council and Baulking Parish Meeting.
The Neighbourhood Plan will take a approximately a further year to complete but when adopted it will have legal status and must be considered when planning decisions are made.
There will be opportunities for all residents to comment on the development of the Plan as it progresses and it will have to be approved via a local referendum before it is adopted.
Details of all aspects of creating and contributing to the Plan can be found on the Neighbourhood Plan website.
A very successful consultation event was held on the evening of 14 November seeking views on the draft policies following the completion of the Lanscape Study and as we work towards the final draft of this Plan. A short report on the event, which was attened by some 60 parishoners from Uffington and Baulking, and copies of the presentation and all the documents used and discussed is here.
All residents of the 3 Villages were invited to the launch of the Neighbourhood Plan on 21 January, at which views on our draft Vision and Objectives were invited.
The comments made during and after the event have been incorporated into the revised Vision and Objectives which can be viewed on the Neighbourhood Plan website here. The Plan will now be taken forward based on these and whilst major changes are not expected the Vision and Objectives will be periodically reviewed to ensure any signifcant changes are duly reflected.
Any further comments on any aspect of the Neighbourhood Plan and its development are always welcome. Please see here for details.
The Uffington, Baulking and Woolstone Commmunity Led Plan (CLP) was published in December 2015 after almost 2 years of hard work by a group of volunteers operating as a sub-committee of the Uffington Parish Council. The Plan was distributed to all households in the three vilaages and an electronic copy is available here.
The Plan included a prioritised 3 year Action Plan (Appendix 1B) based on the responses from the community. Some actions were passed to organisations within the community for action and the remainder to Uffington Parish Council and Baulking/Woolstone Parish Meetings to take forward.
One of the key actions (5.2) was to complete a Neighbourhood Plan over the next 2 years. Progress against the other actions is given below.
