The Village Meeting

On Tuesday 11 February a village meeting was called and Sue Hunt gave very professional and eloquent presentation of the Parish Plan.  Considering the weather, we had a terrific turnout of approximately 80 people and I thank all of those of you who turned up.  It is my intention that every household will receive a copy of the plan.  It was decided at the meeting that the village should adopt the plan and consequently I have presented a copy to Stratford District Council.  This is not a Neighbourhood Plan, so holds no legal weight, but does show to Stratford District Council and developers the feelings of the village about out future.  It is worth noting that 83% of the residents completed the survey, which is a very high percentage.  It is interesting to see that the majority hold similar views as to why we all enjoy living in Oxhill.  I would like to thank all of you on the Steering Group who put in so much time and effort to produce such a comprehensive and informative document.  Special thanks to Sue Hunt, who chaired and compiled the plan, and to Gill Stewart, for her guidance and expertise in planning practice.

I have received information that Stansgate Planning Consultants are developing a planning proposal for The Leys Field on behalf of the landowners.  As I write this, their proposal is to develop an estate of 20 – 25 houses with an open ‘green space’.  They have requested a meeting with the parish council and then to present a development plan to the village.  The parish council will, of course, keep everyone up to date on this proposal.
