Oakley Neighbourhood Development Plan
The Parish Council has registered with the Borough Council to produce its own Neighbourhood Plan and has set up a sub-group consisting of Parish Councillors and interested residents. The sub-group will develop the Neighbourhood Plan over the next 2 years.
A Vision for Oakley Bedfordshire
To protect the village community & the landscape within which it sits.
The Neighbourhood Plan Group have been working hard and the policies are now in draft form. They are based on what you have already told us.
The policies will, when adopted, affect all the planning applications that the Borough Planning Authority will consider and the decisions the Borough make.
The group needs your help again. We need to know that the policies have your agreement and also any new ideas you may have. This is very important because the policies will decide where development might go and inform how the village will develop up till 2035.
The Consultation day is Sunday 29th January, in the Village Hall, 10am to 4pm.
All the policies will be on display. They include: Landscape and Environmental; Historic Structures and Important areas; Housing Development and Design Policy; Local Business /Employment Policy; Highways and Transport Policy; Green Space Policy.
Your Views are needed so that you shape the village you live in. Please put this date in your diaries now. There will be displays, tea and coffee.
Further updates will appear here and in the Oakley Newsletter.
