The Parish Council is holding the first Neighbourhood Plan public meeting on Saturday 1st October.
The meeting will explain more about the neighbourhood planning process and explore how we can take this forward here in Oxenhope.
We would like as many interested people as possible to attend this initial meeting. Come along and find out what this all about and see if you can contribute.
In developing a Neighbourhood Plan it is essential to engage with a wide Stakeholder Group – people who are interested and wish to be kept up to date by email and be invited to occasional consultee meetings etc. You can find out more about neighbourhood planning and sign up to join the stakeholder group here.
We will also use the meeting to ask for expressions of interest to join the Project Group. We envisage a small, representative team of up to 12 people will work with the Council and our consultants to develop a draft plan.
