Culham Neighbourhood Plan

Culham Parish Council is working on 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. 

What's happening now?

Culham Parish Council has submitted a Neighbourhood Area Designation application to South Oxfordshire District Council.

The neighbourhood area designation outlines the area which will be covered by the neighbourhood plan for Culham.

The proposed neighbourhood area designation follows the parish boundary of Culham. We are required to carry out this consultation as the proposed neighbourhood area overlaps with a small part of the designated neighbourhood area for Clifton Hampden. You can view a boundary map showing the overlap here. (1.4 MB) PDF  

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) measures put in place by government are beginning to be relaxed, we are now inviting your comments on the area designation application and supporting documents. Due to the continued COVID-19 restrictions, and the school holidays, the consultation, which would normally run for six weeks, will run for eight weeks from Thursday 18 June to midnight on Thursday 13 August 2020.
