Welcome to the Moreton-in-Marsh
Neighbourhood Plan

Have your say in the future development of Moreton!


The results are in from the survey asking for your opinions on the draft objectives for our Neighbourhood Plan.

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. We had a total of 473 completed surveys which is a response rate of around 11%.  As you can see from the charts below there is overwhelming support for the objectives which means we can now move onto the next phase, which is the development of the policies and the plan document.

Once the plan document is completed, it will be reviewed by Cotswold District Council, then by an independent examiner and finally by yourselves in the form of a local referendum.

So here are the results from the survey.












































































What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

In a Nutshell

​A Neighbourhood Plan is formed by the local residents. It sits alongside the Cotswold District Council Local Plan and is used to make planning decisions. It sets out the community's vision for the future and contains planning policies. The process of making a Neighbourhood is led by a group of volunteer residents, and must go through full engagement and consultation with the whole community. Before it's adopted, it must be verified by an independent planning inspector, then finally voted for by residents through a referendum.

A Neighbourhood Plan

is an opportunity for the local community to say what it wants for its local area upto 2031.

It's a great way for residents to set a vision for the town, influence planning decisions, improve local facilities and help protect important community assets.

For example, it can be used to help retain green spaces and important buildings, detail the type of housing we need and the facilities we as a community want - plus a lot more.

"The Plan"

It's critical that all local residents have the opportunity to put forward their thoughts and ideas to create a collective and unified vision for Moreton-in-Marsh. 

Engagement through surveys and events will continue throughout 2021 to inform the development of the Neighbourhood Plan and we'd welcome your views.

To see all past and upcoming engagement activities please take a look at the items under the "Events" tab.
