Somerford Keynes neighbourhood plan

Consultation on Somerford Keynes neighbourhood development plan

Somerford Keynes Parish Council has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The Plan sets out a vision for the future of the parish and planning policies and will be used to help decide local planning applications. The process is:

  • six week consultation until 24 January 2020
  • the plan, its supporting documents and any representations made will be reviewed by an independent examiner. If the examiner decides that the plan meets the 'Basic Conditions', the plan will go to referendum
  • at the referendum If more than 50% of people vote to support the plan, it will be used by Cotswold District Council to help decide planning applications in Somerford Keynes Parish. 

Make comments on the neighbourhood plan by 5pm on 24 January 2020

In May 2014, Somerford Keynes Parish Council approached us to have their parish area designated as a Neighbourhood Area, the first formal step in developing a neighbourhood plan. Following the statutory consultation period, we designated this area on 9 July 2014. Please view the map of the area and the original submission below.
