The 6 week Consultation Period ran from 6 December 2018 to 24 January 2019 (the period was extended by 1 week to allow for the Christmas and New Year holiday periods). You can view the neighbourhood plan and supporting documents at www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/uffingtonbaulking .
Following the consultation period, the process is then as follows:
* Recommendations from the Examiner are currently under consideration by VWHDC so the Plan is not yet adopted.
Whilst the Award was made to the Steering Group, with particular reference to the consultation process, it therefore also reflects the considerable input from villagers in both parishes to the written questionaires and at the consultation and other events - thank you.
Following the Pre-submission consultation period the Plan was updated to reflect the comments made (details are here in the appendices to the Consultation Statement). This set of documents has been approved by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, Uffington Parish Council and Baulking Parish Meeting. They were submitted to the Vale of the White Horse District Council on 25 October 2018.
A range of community events will be held whilst the Plan is being created and approved. 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 Vale and then the external examiner are/will be reviewing the report and any last minute consultation responses to inform the final update to the Part 2 Plan.
