Housing Development in Oxhill

Last year Stratford District Council updated their definition of Local Services Villages, adding village halls and public houses to the qualifying list.  Together with a regular bus service, Oxhill now has the minimum three out of seven ‘public services’ and is therefore subject to future housing development.  The Parish Council has already been approached by one large developer and a private developer, and more will follow.  The District Council is keen to see Parish Councils and the community become more involved in the future planning of their villages.  Oxhill needs a Parish Plan and to identify housing need.

Parish Plans will form part of the bedrock of new local development frameworks that will be prepared by every local planning authority to replace existing local plans.  So, to this end, I am calling a public meeting to explain the formation of a Parish Plan and to elect a steering committee.  The committee will look at the needs of our village and areas that we, the people of Oxhill, would find acceptable for current and future development.  We need a good cross-section of residents on the committee, but for obvious reasons, owners of land fit for development should not sit on the committee.

Sarah Brooke-Taylor from Warwickshire Rural Community Council will be present to explain and guide us through the process of setting up a Neighbourhood/Parish Plan.  We will need a committee of six to eight residents, along with one member of the Parish Council.  If you are unable to attend the meeting, but would like to be put forward for this committee, please phone me – 680664.

This is your chance to have your say and influence the future of housing within the community (see www.countryside.gov.uk).
