Cumnor parish is situated 3–4 miles southwest of Oxford and is divided into four wards: Cumnor Village, Cumnor Hill, Dean Court and Farmoor.
There are around 2700 dwellings in the parish and around 7000 residents, about 4800 of whom are registered electors. About 75% of the area of Cumnor parish is farmland.
Cumnor Parish Council has begun the process of developing a Neighbourhood Plan, which is a way for communities to influence their local area. The plan can cover where housing should go, and its design and density, but can also cover much more than housing. It can be used to protect green spaces, identify and protect heritage assets, identify which community assets should be protected and enhanced, and address important infrastructure issues. The public consultation that ran for 4 weeks from Monday 14 November, which concerned only the area that the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group had chosen to be included (see link to designation map below), was the first step towards the Neighbourhood Plan. The results of this consultation will be available in due course and will be highlighted here.
This process is driven, developed and formed by the local communities and is reliant on volunteers. If you would like to get involved in any way please contact the Parish Clerk.
