What is the Wheatley Neighbourhood Plan?

Due to the national housing shortage the need for additional housing development in our area is inevitable. We will receive a draft quota of new housing from South Oxfordshire District Council for discussion later this summer. The Wheatley Neighbourhood Plan (WNP) provides an opportunity for the village to influence where new housing will be located.

The Committee

The Wheatley Neighbourhood Plan Committee convened as a statutory consultation body in January 2016. All committee members are local residents and volunteers and were recruited at public meetings. Visit the Committee page to see who we are!

The Road Map

This website is designed to clearly show and explain the Wheatley Neighbourhood Plan 'Road Map': the details, the process and the timeframe of the neighbourhood plan. We will also be posting regular updates and news items, which you can view below.

The Logo

The logo was designed as part of a competition at Wheatley Park School. The winning logo was designed by Alison Driver and Milly Whittingham, of Wheatley Park School Art Department. The logo shows the outline of the Wheatley Parish and the Green Belt.
