HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE FUTURE OF OUNDLE UP TO 2031

Following consultation with residents and interested parties Oundle Town Council (OTC) have produced a draft Neighbourhood Plan

http://www.oundle.gov.uk/the-plan.html

This plan will be the basis of all planning and development in Oundle up to 2031. The proposed Plan is now starting its most important stage.

From Monday 9th April for 6 weeks you have the opportunity to give your views and recommendations on this proposed plan. (Regulation 14)

Come along to one, or more, of the following: -

16th April Victoria Hall 7.30pm – 9.00pm

18th April Fletton House 10-12am

21st April Fletton House 2-4pm

23rd April Fletton House 7:30-9:30pm

10th May OTC Market Stall 9.00am to 2.00pm

12th May OTC Market Stall 9.00am to 1.00pm

Write to the Councillors c/o Fletton House, or email http://www.oundle.gov.uk/

Monday 21st May Feedback ends. Any changes to the plan as a result of feedback are made by OTC

Mid 2018 Revised plan is forwarded to ENDC, who will appoint an inspector. The inspector will carry out 6 weeks of consultation. Once complete, they will approve it or pass it back, with comments, to the OTC for reconsideration.

Late 2018 A referendum will take place, similar to a local electionA simple majority of those who vote will decide if the plan is adopted.

  • • Oundle has to provide some planned development between now and 2031. Having a plan enables us to control where development can occur and where it can't and in what numbers.
  • • If we don't have a plan developers will be able to apply to develop wherever and build as many houses as they might want and we will not be able to stop them.
  • • If we don't pass a Neighbourhood Plan by the end of 2018 there won't be time to merge it into the higher level East Northants Plan which means that decisions taken above Oundle will always take priority. If our Plan is in place first, the ENDC Plan will take it and its planning constraints into account.

Setting out how we want Oundle to develop is the best way to shape our town for the future and, at the same time, protect all that is important about it.

PLEASE KEEP THIS LEAFLET AND COME ALONG TO ONE OF THE MEETINGS.

REMEMBER IT'S YOUR TOWN AND YOUR PLAN. OTC 2018
