Neighbourhood Plan

Fairford Neighbourhood Plan – Update May 2023

Thank you Fairford!

The Fairford Neighbourhood Plan was accepted in the Referendum on 4th May by an overwhelming majority of 90%. So many thanks to the 1,097 of you who voted for the Plan. The Town Council and the Steering Group have worked for over ten years to prepare this Plan which will direct housing to sustainable areas and protect our green spaces and heritage. The Plan will be a valuable tool in dealing with planning applications and will allow Fairford to receive the Community Infrastructure Levy from developers.

Fairford is a great place to be and this Plan will help protect it.

The Town Council would like to thank the current Steering Group of: Margaret Bishop and Jon Hill (Joint chairs), Sarah Basley, Richard Harrison, Andrew Doherty and Jennie Sanford.

As well as all those who have worked on the plan over the years: Malcolm Cutler, Caroline Symcox, Alison Hobson, Lizzie Garthwaite, Tim Francis, Suzanne Jones and Neil Homer from O’Neill Homer.

A special thanks must go to Roz Morton, Deputy Town Clerk, who made sure that everyone did the work necessary to produce the Plan.

Jon Hill, Joint Chair.
