The following activities are normally undertaken during the scoping phase. For our Plan, some of these tasks have been facilitated by the creation of the CLP immediately preceding the NP. The main activities are:
Initiate the Plan Creation Process - the process must be initiated by a 'Qualifying Body'. The NP will be created by a sub-committee of the Uffington Parish Council which is a 'Qualifying Body'; for this purpose the Council includes representation from Woolstone and Baulking Parish Meetings. The VOWH District Council has been informed of our intention to proceed with a NP and has appointed a link/liaison officer.
The original Vision and Objectives were created by the NPSG. A community event was held on 21 January 2016 to publicise these to the community and elicit comments and feedback. More information on this event is given here. Using the feedback obtained, the Vision and Objectives were modified to reflect the views of the wider community. The final version of the Vision and Objectives are shown here.
The table below shows how all elements of the vision (broken down in the first column) are aligned with the topics and objectives and how these, in turn, are used to create the 5 focus groups which will look into these areas in more detail, and create any new policies required, during the Delivery Phase.
