Do we want a neighbourhood plan?
The Parish Council welcomed residents interested in hearing the pros and cons of doing a neighbourhood plan to its APM last week. David Pheasant from Shiplake Parish Council and Sue Biggs from Kidmore End PC gave a taste of their experiences so far. A show of hands from the 21 people present showed that they were nearly all in favour of drawing up a neighbourhood plan.
More discussions on the matter will be taking place at meetings in June and July (no meeting in August) and the council hopes to make a decision by the end of the year. All residents in the parish are encouraged to come to the meetings and give their views. (See Parish Council minutes May 2018)
Gladman appeal extended
The planning inspector has allowed a postponement of the conclusion of the appeal hearing against Gladman's plans to build 245 houses in Eye & Dunsden parish. A date is to be set for late August to finish the hearing.
