The Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group has completed a 12-month review of the East Hagbourne Neighbourhood Plan, which was approved by the Parish Council at its meeting on 23 April 2020 and can be read here.

The purpose of the review is to assess the extent to which the Neighbourhood Plan objectives have been implemented in practice and the contribution of the policies and projects contained within it towards meeting those objectives. The main conclusions are:

– The policies are generally being incorporated into planning decisions and that the Plan has been referenced by EHPC and SODC Planning Officers in assessing planning applications.

– The EHNP policies are considered to be robust and to not require any changes at this time.
