Comments can also be made by:

  • writing to South Oxfordshire District Council at the above address

As the neighbourhood planning process includes an independent examination of the plan, your name, postal address and email (where applicable) are required for your comments to be considered.

Next steps

After the publicity period ends, your response, including your name, postal address and email (where applicable) will be sent to an independent examiner to consider. The opportunity for further comments at this stage would only be at the specific request of the examiner. 

Most neighbourhood plans are examined without the need for a public hearing. If you think the neighbourhood plan requires a public hearing, you can state this in your comments, but the examiner will make the final decision. Please clearly state in your comments if you wish to be notified of our decision on whether we formally adopt the neighbourhood plan.

All personal data will be held securely by the council and examiner in line with the Data Protection Act 2018. Comments submitted by individuals will be published on our website alongside their name. No other contact details will be published. Comments submitted by businesses or organisations will be published in full, including contact details. Further information on how we store personal data is provided in our privacy policy
