Shilton Neighbourhood Plan and Community Right to Build Order

In April 2018 Shilton Parish Council submitted the following to us:

  • A Neighbourhood Plan; and
  • Community Right to Build Order

Public consultation May and June 2018

There was a public consultation asking for comments on both these documents - for more details see below.

Independent examination

The submission documents and responses to the consultation were then sent to an independent examiner.

We received the examiner's reports for both, set out below, on 13 December 2018:

  • Shilton Community Right to Build Order
    (for the development of 12 dwellings on land at Hen N Chick Lane)
    Summary: 'The Report finds that the Order does not meet the statutory requirements and consequently should be refused and not proceed to referendum'.

  • Shilton Neighbourhood Plan 
    Summary: 'The Shilton Neighbourhood Plan meets the basic conditions, and I recommend to West Oxfordshire District Council that, subject to modifications, it should proceed to referendum'.

We must now take a decision on whether or not to accept the examiners recommendation that the Neighbourhood Plan proceed to referendum. The outcome of this decision will be published here in due course.
