DATCHET NOW HAS A NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN!
Since 2011 the Government has encouraged local communities to produce a Neighbourhood Plan
to give us all the chance to have a say in our area's future development and growth.
Thanks to the help, support, and input from the community, Datchet's Neighbourhood Plan has been successful at a public referendum on 4 May 2023 and adopted by RBWM on 27 June 2021.
It will now be used to help decide planning applications in our area.
