Announcement from VWHDC – 17th September 2014:

Drayton Neighbourhood Plan Publication

After several months of engagement with their local community, Drayton Parish Council has developed and submitted the Drayton Neighbourhood Plan.  To view details of the documents that have been submitted please visit and click on the Drayton link. Hard copies of the document will also be available at the district council offices and Drayton Parish Council offices.

The Drayton Neighbourhood Plan is underpinned by Sustainability and looks at four key areas for policy development. These are the ‘look and feel’, ‘work and play’, ‘transport’ and ‘housing’.

The publication period ran from Wednesday 17 September until Wednesday 29 October 2014, closing at 5.00pm precisely. This was a six week publication period. All comments received as part of this publication have now been submitted to the examiner as part of the examination process. Please remember that the examiner is only testing whether the plan meets the basic conditions and other relevant legal requirements set out in the Localism Act. They are not testing the soundness of the plan or looking at other material considerations. You can send your comments through to or send letters through to Planning, Vale of White Horse District Council, Benson Lane, Crowmarsh Gifford, OX10 8ED,

Please be aware that all comments that we receive will be publicly available and will be included on our website.

If you would like to be notified about our decision whether to ‘make’ the neighbourhood plan following examination, please also include this in your comments.

If you have any queries or problems accessing this information please contact the Planning Policy team on 01235-540347.
