Helping communities answer the question ‘which plan should we do?’

60 participants from 31 Oxfordshire communities came to a planning workshop on 15 July at Steventon village hall. The main concern among participants was understanding the difference between Community Led Plans and Neighbourhood Plans, which is the right plan, and how does it all fit in with the pressures of development and the timing of Local Plans.

Every community faces different pressures, but a key conclusion from the workshop was that often a Community Led Plan is a good starting point, providing a vision and identifying the main community concerns across a broad range of issues.

This can provide a strong basis of community engagement and robust evidence for the community to then go on to address spatial development issues through the formal statutory process that is required in a Neighbourhood Plan.
