As an addition to the information in our Welcome Pack, it has been suggested we provide information about local businesses. If you would like your business to be included, please let us know.
GREAT COXWELL NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
In yesterday's referendum a majority of parishioners voted in favour of the Great Coxwell Neighbourhood Plan, meaning that the District Council will use its contents in their planning considerations. In addition, those contemplating developments in the Parish now have an officially approved 'template' on which to base their designs.
The Parish Council is grateful for parishioners' advice and feedback, without which it would have been impossible to complete a project that we hope will benefit everyone living in Great Coxwell. Thank you to so many of you who voted in the referendum. Now let's make full use of the documents to meet our aspirations for our beautiful village and countryside around.
This site is run by the parishioners of Great Coxwell for the benefit of everyone. Please submit information, ideas and comments so that the site can be developed to best effect.
