Keep Shippon in the Greenbelt

SHWPC have sent a formal letter to our local MP in referencing the Vale of White Horse District Council’s LPP2 Process.  This letter can be seen in full by clicking this link LPP2 Letter to MP’s. The LPP2 Inspector responded to Layla Moran MP on 24 January 2019 and his letter can be seen by clicking this link LPP2 response to letter to MPs. He sets out his thinking behind his recommendation that the built up areas of Shippon and Dalton Barracks, in addition to the new development on the Airfield, be removed from the Green Belt.


St Helen Without Parish Council held an open meeting on 8 March to highlight the current VWHDC Consultation on the Draft Main Modifications to LPP2 which runs from 18 February 2019 to 1 April 2019. The Draft Main Modifications and how to respond to the Consultation can be found at The Local Plan 2031 Part 2: Detailed Policies and Additional Sites – Proposed Draft Main Modifications Consultation – Vale of White Horse District Council . At the meeting two handouts were given out. The first handout is a simple overview which can be seen by clicking this link SHW PC LPP2 Handout No 1. The second handout is a more detailed technical note to support responses to the Consultation which can be seen by clicking this link SHW PC LPP2 Handout NO 2. A presentation was given and the slides can be seen by clicking this link SHW PC 8 March LPP2 Presentation.


We encourage everyone to respond to the Consultation giving your views in your own words if you believe Shippon should remain in the Green Belt, or any other views you may have.  Note, your points should focus on the issues raised by the Draft Main Modifications i.e. Shippon being removed from the Green Belt.


If you have any questions on the Draft Main Modifications please email to our Parish Clerk at clerkshwpc@gmail.com.
