Abingdon Neighbourhood Plan

Feria Urbanism has been appointed by Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council to provide support for their neighbourhood plan project.

The town council has recently committed to produce a neighbourhood plan to guide the development of the town over the next decade or more. The plan will seek to positively address a range of issues. Our extensive experience of preparing neighbourhood plans, working alongside the local community, led to our team being appointed following a competitive tender process.

Our work involves providing the client group with a better understanding of what a neighbourhood plan can and cannot do in terms of regulating the built environment and the statutory processes that need to be adhered to. We shall also provide skills support as they begin to assemble their steering group together with mapping assistance as they undertake a strategic place audit.

Due to the restrictions on movement and social gatherings imposed during the Covid-19 public health crisis, much of this early phase of work was successfully shifted to online platforms and video calls.
