Work has started to update the Boxford Parish Plan, this will be driven by the Parish Council with the assistance of a committee. If you are interested in being part of the committee please contact the Parish Council Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The initial stage is to build the new parishioners questionnaires, we hope to get these out to all households Spring 2021, from this we can then start to review, consult and start to put together the plan.
Boxford Parish Council took the initiative to develop a Parish Plan in May 2006 when the first of many public meetings was held to introduce the concept of a Parish Plan for Boxford. In October 2006 the Boxford Parish Plan Steering Committee was established and after much hard work and input from everyone in the Parish, the final draft was completed. West Berkshire District Council formally adopted the whole Parish Plan without amendment on 1st July 2008.
The Parish Plan Steering Committee held an evening to celebrate its publication on Thursday 18th September from 8pm at the Village Hall. Five £1000 grants for Action Plan Items were given to representatives at the meeting, namely the Village Hall, the Pavilion at the Recreation Ground, the children’s play area at the Recreation Ground, the church and the Boxford History Project. Those unable to attend on the 18th September were subsequently delivered a copy of the Parish Plan.
Having successfully completed and delivered the Parish Plan, the steering committee handed over the monitoring of the Plan and the Action Items to the Parish Council on 2nd October 2008. Further information and copies can be obtained from the Parish Clerk. Progress of the Action Items will be covered in the Parish Council Minutes with highlights and achievements being detailed on this webpage. Most of the 15 Action Items identified in the Plan have now been completed or are in progress.
West Berkshire Council has published Boxford’s Parish Plan on their website.
