What content is in our Eton & Eton Wick Neighbourhood Plan?

What are the other sections?
In addition to Housing and Development, our Plan has sections on Business, Leisure and Tourism, Transport and Infrastructure and The Environment.

Where can I see the Neighbourhood Plan?
The Eton & Eton Wick Neighbourhood Plan and the Examiner’s report have been on the RBWM website and are now on the Eton Town Council website too These 2 documents together are what we are being asked to vote on. RBWM are incorporating the Examiner’s comments into the Neighbourhood Plan so that in the coming days, we will only need to look at one document.

Will the Neighbourhood Plan with the comments incorporated be easy for me to access?
Once RBWM have compiled this into one document we will put this onto the Eton Town Council website and we will inform people through the Eton Community Association and Eton Wick Village Association too. We plan to make copies available in the Eton Wick and Eton libraries as well.

Who developed the Eton & Eton Wick Neighbourhood Plan?
About 300 people from Eton & Eton Wick gave their views and ideas throughout the 3+ year process, using the process determined by the Government. About 30 people were involved in the Steering group and sub group work, all of whom volunteered. Support from external and RBWM experts helped us to follow the process correctly.

Who decided this was the Neighbourhood plan?
The Steering group met on 3rd May 2017 and unanimously voted to support the content of the Neighbourhood plan. This was then taken to Eton Town Council, who approved the submission of the Plan to RBWM as minuted in CM 4806 and 4823 of Eton Town council minutes.

What has happened since May 2017?
Three documents were submitted, as approved: The Neighbourhood Plan, the Consultation statement and the Basic Conditions Statement. RBWM then appoint an external examiner to check that the process has been correctly followed and that the content meets the expectations for what should be included, with supporting documentation.

We passed! This means that the referendum to vote on whether you support our plan can take place. Please vote!
