Referendum – all the NP documents!


We know most residents will be content to look though the plan itself – but for those who like to see the detail – here are all the documents you could possibly ask for!

Cherwell D.C. have published the date of the Bloxham Neighbourhood Plan Referendum which will take place on 3rd November 2016.
You can find out about the arrangements from the the C.D.C. Information Statement below.
You can also download the Plan itself along with a host of other mandatory and ancilliary documents prepared in the course of creating the plan.

The initial links are to the Cherwell website but most have  a “or click here” backup stored on a Bloxham site.

Background Reports

The reports that follow are not part of the submitted plan. They summarise much of the information gleaned by various working groups and others during plan creation. Their content is extensive and whilst much of it informs the final plan not every paragraph within will necessarily represent the views of the Steering Group.
