Welcome

Many Villagers have expressed support for Ewelme to have its own Neighbourhood Plan.

This website is designed to keep you, the community of Ewelme, updated on progress, opinions, key issues,

activities and events which will help formulate our Neighbourhood plan.

Why do we need a Neighbourhood Plan? The purpose of Neighbourhood planning is to give communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their community and shape the development and growth of their local area. Without one, our small, rural village is vulnerable to undesirable changes and uncontrollable development. Our vision for Ewelme To protect the rural character and tranquillity of Ewelme within the Chilterns AONB, to respect our history and heritage, and to retain the great sense of community in Ewelme by ensuring housing and infrastructure provision is made for this and future generations. Objectives To do this we will develop policies which; - Cherish the local environment - Protect our heritage - Support the management of the Chilterns AONB - Support the principles of the Conservation Area - Protect our valued community assets, facilities and open spaces - Support the local community infrastructure including the school, church and pre-school - Provide an infrastructure for local businesses, including the shop,  and home working - Define acceptable criteria against which plans for new housing stock can be considered within the built-up area - Define criteria against which planning proposals would be considered outside the built up area - Comply with national and local planning policy - Promotes the principles of sustainable development and European environmental standards The community of Ewelme will be asked for their views on these issues and these views will be used to formulate the policies in our Neighbourhood plan.  Once drafted, we will consult and review the plan before holding a referendum on whether to accept it or not. Once approved at a referendum, the Plan becomes a statutory part of the development plan for the area and will carry significant weight in how planning applications are decided.
