Fairford neighbourhood plan

Examination of Fairford Neighbourhood Plan

Fairford Town Council parish area was designated as a Neighbourhood Area in 20 November 2013. A pre-submission draft plan was consulted on in late 2016.

In February 2017, Fairford submitted their Regulation 16 Draft and accompanying documents. This was then subject to a six week consultation, which closed on 11th April. The plan and all comments received have been sent to the independent examiner, Mr Andrew Ashcroft, who is currently conducting his examination.

Following a clarification meeting to consider points raised on the Sustainability Appraisal on 10 May, Fairford Town Council has submitted a revised Sustainability Appraisal and Sites Assessment, below. The note of the meeting is also available below. These two documents are now subject to consultation for a six week period, from Friday 9 June 2017 until 5pm on Friday 21 July. Please note that only these two documents are subject to consultation, and not the submission plan as a whole. 

Hard copies are also available for inspection between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices on Trinity Road, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 1PX. 

You can view hard copies at the following locations:

  • 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday at the Council offices on Trinity Road, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 1PX. 
  • Monday – Friday  10am to 1pm at Fairford Community Centre 

All comments must be received by 5pm on Friday 21 July 2017. To comment, please:

We will accept other comments in writing (including email) as long as you give your name and address is supplied. We cannot accept anonymous comments.

All comments will be publicly available, and identifiable by name and (where applicable) organisation. Please note that any other personal information provided will be processed by Cotswold District Council in line with the Data Protection Act 1998. 


The examiner  also prepared a further note, identifying points for clarification, which have now been responded to by both Fairford Town Council and Cotswold District Council.

The examiner's finding will be published here in due course.
