Guiding Principles

Community Led

The steering group has been created by the Parish Council, will report to the Parish Council, and contain representation from the Parish Council. However, as community members, we will work independently of the council to represent the community of Hook Norton.


The steering group will produce a sustainable plan for a sustainable village. Not only should we be planning for a sustainable future for Hook Norton, we need to ensure that our plan is implementable, and sustainable for its intended duration.

Inclusive and Independent

The steering group will actively seek the views of all the individuals, organisations and businesses that live, work, learn and play in the village of Hook Norton. In the process of developing the Neighbourhood Plan we will seek to represent the village as a whole, giving equal consideration to all organisations, businesses and individuals.


We will be open to any person, organisation or business that wants to contribute to creating a sustainable future for Hook Norton. Whilst we will seek to maintain a steering group of roughly ten members, we will hold our meetings in public, and anybody will be welcome to attend and contribute to our meetings. We will actively seek to inform the village of our activities, and will publish our meeting minutes.
