Section 3 of the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 gives neighbourhood plans full legal effect once they have passed their local referendums.  As the majority of local electors voted in favour of the plan, the Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan is now part of the council’s Development Plan and will be used to help determine planning applications in Chinnor.

What happens next?

The Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan (3.6 MB) PDF will now go to South Oxfordshire District Council to be made. That means it will be formally adopted by the council so that it can continue to be part of the Development Plan for the district.
