Wolvercote Neighbourhood Forum and Area was re-designated for a further five years by Oxford City Council at the City Executive Board meeting on 13th March 2019.
The Wolvercote Neighbourhood Forum represents Wolvercote Ward residents in planned developments for our local Area. We have done this by collecting and documenting the community’s views into a Neighbourhood Plan, which is currently being reviewed by an independent examiner. Subject to the examiner’s approval, the draft plan will then be presented to the residents of Wolvercote in a referendum to be held late spring 2019. If approved it will become a binding legal planning document. The Plan would then be a material consideration for all future planning applications in our Ward.
The Forum was created as a result of the 2011 Localism Act and is recognized by Oxford City Council. In addition to creating the Neighbourhood Plan, the Forum actively engages with local and regional planning authorities’ consultations about local and regional development as it affects our Ward. In October 2018 the Forum submitted this response to the Oxford North outline planning application.
The future of Wolvercote Ward residents and your families is at stake. You are strongly urged to have your say. Sign up to our e-Mailing List (right) to learn about progress drafting the plan and to hear breaking news of planning issues affecting our area. We value your input. Your contact information is securely stored and is not shared with any other organisation.
