After several months of engagement with its local community, Faringdon Town Council has developed and submitted the Faringdon Neighbourhood Plan to the Vale of White Horse District.  Under the Neighbourhood Plan process, the District Council is holding a seven week publication for people to comment on the submitted proposals and the documents can be viewed on www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/neighbourhoodplans by clicking on the Faringdon link. The publication period runs from 25 July - 12 September 2014 and comment forms which are provided on the District Council website can be sent through to planning.policy@whitehorsedc.gov.uk  If you have any queries or problems accessing this information, please contact the Planning Policy team at the District Council on 01235 540499.
