Welcome to our WNDP website 

Consultation 3 - now closed

We received 527 responses by paper or online plus additional submissions by e mail documentation and we are grateful to all those who have taken part and the full results will be available shortly. There is a very strong level of support indicated with support for the Plan at 89% and between 88% and 95% for the draft policies. We received just over 1100 comments.

We have published two flyers giving outline information and events relating to Consultation 3, which  closed on the 2nd June. In addition, we gave a short presentation at the Watlington Parish Council AGM on Thursday 18th May, which can be seen here

The Pyrton NDP Consultation has now also closed

We are working with SODC on traffic modelling in the area, this will include the potential impact of any development at Chalgrove. Traffic management for the town centre features highly in our evidence alongside other factors - we have appointed a consultancy to advise us with more data and recommendations and that work is underway

This is the home page for the Watlington Neighbourhood Development Plan. At present it provides an outline of the programme and our progress with it that will eventually lead to a plan that gives the people of Watlington some control over how their community develops up to the year 2032. The information provided on it will grow steadily as we progress with the plan.

We recognise the importance of exploiting both paper and electronic lines of communication.  A regular report on progress is included in the Watlington Times, published monthly. Written comments or suggestions are welcome at the address below. Get involved
