N P Open Exhibition – Questions & Answers

All the information presented at the Neighbourhood Plan Open Exhibition has been made available on the website.  Residents also asked specific questions and made additional comments on the forms when registering their views on the neighbourhood plan proposals, the outcome of which was a very postive with 73% in favour of the proposals. These are being considered as part of the consultation process.  Many questions, particularly those of a general nature, can be answered quite quickly.

Click here to see those Questions and Answers. Also make sure you receive your copy of the November issue of Shiplake News, which will have a major update on the plan.

Any other questions please do not hesitate to email the Steering Group: np2017@shiplakevillages.com.

Thames Farm Judicial Review Update

The parish council, supported by residents, has been consistent in opposing the development of housing on the Thames Farm site. Our objections have been based both on highway safety grounds and because - as a substantial residential development outside the village boundary - such development is not sustainable.  

SODC has always rejected Thames Farm's applications for residential development, and this has been confirmed on appeal by the planning inspectorate. Earlier this year, however, a planning inspector overturned SODC's refusal to grant planning permission, in this case for 95 houses. 

Our legal advisors - including a leading planning QC - believe we have strong grounds for arguing that the inspector was wrong. Shiplake and SODC continue to fight the decision and we are both seeking leave to appeal against it in the High Court. Our applications were initially rejected, which is not unusual, but both we and SODC have the right to seek leave at an oral hearing, which will be heard at the Royal Courts of Justice on 28th November. 

We will keep you updated on progress in this matter and thank you for your support in ensuring the right outcome prevails.
