Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan

After conducting research and consulting with the community, Eynsham Parish Council has produced a Neighbourhood Development Plan for the parish.

This sets out a number of planning policies and the following vision for the future:

‘Our vision for the Parish of Eynsham at the end of the plan period (2031) is that both new and existing residents will be enjoying the same benefits of living in the village as current residents do in 2017 and that the area will be an even more attractive community in which to live and work.’

A final public consultation on Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan was held during August and September 2017, and responses to this can be viewed below. These responses, together with the Neighbourhood Plan and other supporting documents, were submitted to Independent Examiner of Eynsham Neighbourhood Plan, Ann Skippers.
