A range of community events will be held whilst the Plan is being created. These will cover both general progress of the Plan and specific topics where we want to ensure we have captured and reflected accurately the views of the community.

Part 1. The Vale Local Plan Part 1 was made on 14 December 2016. In parallel with the finalisation of Part 1, the Vale has been working on Part 2 which will be launched for
public consultation on 6 March 2017. In line with the Vale's our Statement of Community
Involvement we are keen to ensure that members of the public have a range of opportunities to become aware of the Local Plan and that they understand the
importance of giving us their feedback on the plan.
Part 2. A series of public events was organised to enable members of the public to meet with Planning Officers to discuss the Local Plan and to share their views on the options. The Council received over 3,000 comments from over 500 individual consultees and/or organisations to the Local Plan 2031 Part 2 Preferred Options Consultation. The VOWH is currently reviewing the consultation responses to inform an update to the Part 2 Plan. It is anticipated that we will consult on the Publication Version of the Local Plan 2031 Part 2 in the Oct/Nov of 2017. Further details are in the June 2017 Vale Update Bulletin here.
The Vale is hosting public events across the district to help explain the publicity period and how to comment. The events include an exhibition from 4-6.30pm followed by a public meeting from 7-8.30pm and will be held at the following dates and times:
· Monday 6 November: Abingdon College, Abingdon Campus, OX14 1GG *
· Tuesday 14 November: Corn Exchange, Gloucester Street, Faringdon, SN7 7JA
