Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan Review 2018-2019

Statement 2019

The Plan was adopted by the Parish in July 2017, has been under review since November 2017 primarily to strengthen it against Government Legislation and Ministerial Statements.

Whilst the Review is currently undergoing scrutiny, it is in its final stages, and as such it is hoped that it will be published for public consultation during the latter half of March 2019.

The Review, once published, will be available to view online at and on the CPC website and in person at the Chinnor Parish Council Offices as well as the Chinnor Library, Village Centre and Village Hall.
Once ready for viewing CPC will advise everyone when it is available.

It will also be available on the 2nd April 2019 at the Chinnor Parish Annual Assembly 7:30 to 9:30 pm at Chinnor Community Pavilion.
At this Annual Assembly members of the Review Steering Committee will be available to answer any queries.


Statement 2018

Why Chinnor needs to undertake a Site Allocation review:

In the closing stages of the preparation of Chinnor's Neighbourhood Plan (CNP) - a Ministerial Statement called for Neighbourhood Plans to contain nominated development sites to strengthen the Plan.

The CNP did not allocate sites because two preferred sites (CHI 7 and CHI 8) plus one reserved site (CHI 20) had already been granted planning permission. Rather than delay the CNP it was decided to proceed without allocating sites and then review the Plan after its adoption to meet this requirement. It was understood that such a review would be a proportional task requiring an amendment/update and not the production of an entirely new plan. Several positive meetings with SODC, Chinnor Parish Council and the Steering Group have recently taken place and work has now commenced on the preparation of the Site Allocation requirement.

We hope to get the review adopted at the earliest opportunity to gain the maximum control
