West Hanney Parish Council – Vale of White Horse District Council (

West Hanney Parish Council has been working with East Hanney Parish Council to produce separate Neighbourhood Plans for each community.  As both villages share amenities such as St James’ Primary, St James’ Church and the War Memorial Hall, we realised that there were many common aspects of the separate plans so a joint working group was established.  Both councils have engaged Community First Oxfordshire to facilitate the production of the plans.

A public consultation meeting was held on April 17th 2016 to launch the Neighbourhood Plans and was well attended.

A community survey was sent to every household in East and West Hanney in December 2016 and the results were made available at public meetings in March and May 2017.  The survey results can be found in the Documents folder link below as Appendix C of the Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan based on the results of the Community Survey has been in development for some time and following a pre-submission discussion with the Vale of White Horse District Council, the Plan was published on this website for the community to examine during a seven week consultation period from 1st November 2019.  All residents were invited to download and read the Neighbourhood Plan documents.

Paper copies of the Plan documents and the consultation response form were also available in the Hanney Community Shop for residents who did not have access to the Internet and Feedback forms could be returned to the Hanney Community Shop or by email.

The Steering group considered all the responses from statutory consultees and residents and after discussion with the Vale of White Horse Planning Department, the Plan has been revised and has now been submitted to the Vale.

Please contact your Parish Councillors if you have any questions about the Neighbourhood Plan or the consultation process.
