NP Annual Report 2020-21

Published: 10 May 2021

From NP Chair, Peter Gardner:

The Lewknor Parish Neighbourhood Plan group had been due to carry out a pre-submission consultation in Spring last year, but the country went into lockdown four days before the consultation was due to start, so it needed to be postponed. The consultation eventually took place in the summer, after the first lockdown was eased. All households and business were consulted, together with fifty nine statutory consultees. Since then, the group have worked through the responses and made appropriate changes to the plan with input from South Oxfordshire District Council regarding such changes. Various documentation setting out the processes by which the plan was prepared and how it complies with the various regulations have been drafted. Progress on the plan has been made since the consultation, albeit slowly, hampered largely by the Covid 19 pandemic situation.
