Berrick Salome Neighbourhood Plan

Berrick Salome Parish Council is working on creating a neighbourhood plan. The process empowers local communities to help direct and shape the way their area grows and develops into the future. A neighbourhood plan will form part of the development plan, which helps to determine planning applications.

Please note: As the neighbourhood planning process includes an independent examination, your name and address are required for your comments to be considered.  The majority of examinations are expected to be through written representations, however the examiner will decide whether there is a need for a public examination.

When making your comments, you can state your views on this and the reasons for the request.  You can also request to be notified of our final decision to adopt the Berrick Salome Neighbourhood Plan.

How your personal details will be used:

Responses to the publicity period will be forwarded to the independent examiner. This will include comments, names and contact details and is required by Part 5, Regulation 17 of the Town and Country Planning (Neighbourhood Planning) Regulations 2012. We have received assurance that the data will be kept securely and not used for any other purpose.

The examiner will retain the data until after we decide whether or not to adopt the plan and the deadline for a Judicial Review has passed. This is six weeks after a decision notice has been published. South Oxfordshire District Council will hold the data for up to six years after a decision notice has been published.

Representations submitted by individuals will be published on our website alongside their name. No other contact details will be published. Representations submitted by businesses or organisations will be published in full, including contact details.
