From Chinnor Parish Council Chairman – Cllr Robin Williams
Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan went to referendum on the 7th September 2017 where the question was posed:
Do you want South Oxfordshire District Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Chinnor to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?
The outstanding result was:
Number cast in favour of a Yes 1744 96%
Number cast in favour of a No 77 4%
Turnout: 36.4 %
Chinnor Parish Council are delighted with this result and would like to thank all those residents who took part in the preparation of the Plan either by contributing to the Consultations or by participating in the preparation of the Plan itself and, of course, those who voted in the referendum. Particular thanks must go to the Plan's Steering Committee who worked extremely hard in the preparation of the Plan over the last three years. Such a Plan would not have been achieved without their dedicated and tireless efforts – efforts which are greatly appreciated by the Council.
The Parish Council sees the Chinnor Neighbourhood Development Plan as a key opportunity to put localism into action, bringing forward a positive vision for our area which can be realised on the ground as decisions are made in the future.
We must now ensure that the Plan works in ensuring that Chinnor remains the delightful place it is without wanton but with sustainable development.
