Oxspring Neighbourhood Plan Update

OXSPRING NEIGHBOURHOOD DEVELOPMENT PLAN

The Parish Council are pleased to advise that R J Bryan, B.A. Hons. M.R.T.P.I. the independent examiner appointed to examine Oxspring Neighbourhood Development Plan, is pleased to announce that the Plan, as modified by his recommendations, should proceed to a Referendum.

His recommendations have been accepted and approved by both Barnsley Council Planning Department and Oxspring Parish Council.  His report is attached for your information.

The next stage of the process is that BMBC have to formally agree that the plan can go forward to Referendum which they have until the 7th March 2019 to complete.  During that time frame we can begin to make arrangements regarding a date for the Referendum.  We will advise residents as soon as we have a final date for this to take place.

Thank you to all those who supported this process, who stuck with it through the difficult times, and supported us, when we thought we would never get this far.

Hopefully the final stage is now in sight.
