Parish refuses joint plan

PEPPARD Parish Council has turned down an offer to work with Sonning Common on a joint neighbourhood plan.

PEPPARD Parish Council has turned down an offer to work with Sonning Common on a joint neighbourhood plan.

Councillors from both parishes had discussed the idea but were unable to agree on the boundary line.

Sonning Common has been earmarked for 152 new homes over the next 13 years under South Oxfordshire District Council’s core strategy.

A neighbourhood planning group made up of residents and councillors has held four “design days” to give villagers a say on acceptable sites for development.

Peppard councillors say they saw no benefit in a joint plan when only part of their parish would be included.

However, they plan to meet Beryl Guiver, principal planning policy officer at the district council, to discuss the issue.
