Garsington Neighbourhood Plan: Consultation on Significant Modifications

Closed 27 Mar 2024

Opened 14 Feb 2024


Garsington Parish Council submitted their draft neighbourhood plan to South Oxfordshire District Council in February 2023.

The examiner issued a Clarification Note, which set out initial comments on the submitted plan and areas where further clarification would be helpful. Garsington Parish Council provided an initial response to the examiner’s Clarification Note.

In response to the issues raised in the Clarification Note, Garsington Parish Council has undertaken further work. As a result of that work, it now proposes modifications to the Plan. These include a modification of the proposed Settlement Boundary and the replacement of the Local Gaps policy (GARS4) with a Settlement Identity policy. A list of all significant modifications can be found in the Schedule of Modifications. The independent examiner has advised that the significance of the Parish Council's proposed modifications to the Plan triggers the need for a further round of consultation.

The district council is therefore inviting comments on these significant modifications. This consultation will run from 14 February 2024 to 11.59pm on 27 March 2024. Please note that only comments relating to the modifications listed in the Schedule of Modifications will be considered.
