Neighbourhood Planning

Neighbourhood Planning is a part of the planning system and enables local communities to influence new development- including housing- in their area. Community First Oxfordshire believes that communities can produce their own Neighbourhood Plan with support from our team of experienced specialists (which includes planning experts).

Since 2014, we have supported 16 Neighbourhood Planning Groups. This support has ranged from full engagement on all aspects of a NP (project planning, sustainability appraisal, consultation strategies, drafting of NP documentation etc.) to bespoke housing and community surveys. Our service is underpinned by excellent working relationships with the relevant planning authority. The Community First Oxfordshire team recognises the value of working collaboratively with communities, housing organisations, local authority officers and developers.
