Oldbury on Severn Neighbourhood Plan – Public Consultation
March 16th 2020 – April 27th 2020

Oldbury on Severn Parish Council has been drawing up a Neighbourhood Plan as part of the development plan for the Parish for over 3 years now. This work has previously been the subject of local consultations, and many of you are already aware of it. However this letter is formal notification of the required statutory six week consultation to be undertaken by the Qualifying Body (Oldbury on Severn Parish Council) before they submit the Plan to the Local Planning Authority, as required by Regulation 14 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

The consultation begins on Monday 16th March 2020 and lasts until Monday 27th April 2020.  Any views or comments you have on this Draft Plan, be it support or otherwise will be welcome.

The Plan and Response form can be found below, as well as links to documentation supporting the Plan which may be of interest. We would also welcome comments on this as it forms the foundation for many of the decisions made which shape the plan. Please use the response form provided, it will make our task easier, and provides a clear framework for linking comments to the relevant policies. This is important when the Parish Council considers how to respond to your comments.

For those who prefer hard copy the plan and response forms are held for inspection at : The Community Shop, The Anchor Inn, St Arilda’s Church and Thornbury Library (please ask at the desk).

Responses should be sent to the Parish Council via their email address: Oldburyndp2017@googlemail.com or can alternatively be made in writing to:
High Chimneys,
Westend Lane
Oldbury on Severn ,
BS351PS

There will also be a ‘Drop In’ event on Saturday 28th March in the Memorial Hall from 12.00 to 18.00 where the plan can be discussed and comments received.
