How to make your voice heard

The bodies listed below are our elected representatives or local and national institutions that have a major interest in our views and opinions. Whether you have matters of fact or opinions and ideas, they will be interested in them. Write or email them so that they can take account of what you think. Keep your communications based on facts and planning law. Make your communication in your own words, and clearly and briefly as possible. If you are looking for ideas about objecting, see other resident comments on the Vale of White Horse website here. (Scroll down to letter folders.) Bear in mind that each resident in a household is entitled to express their views; each communication counts individually, even if many are from one address. Copy your letter and/or email to all those bodies and representatives for your household.
