West Oxfordshire District Council has launched a public consultation to help shape the development of the new West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2041.
The consultation runs until 25 October 2023 and is focused on 3 particular elements:
Draft local plan objectives – a series of draft objectives which are intended to guide the future evolution of the plan in terms of its overall approach and anticipated policy content;
The future pattern of development in West Oxfordshire – different scenarios for how and where we might look to focus future growth in the period up to 2041;
Call for sites, ideas and opportunities – an open invitation for stakeholders to put forward their thoughts on how land in the District might be used in the future such as new housing, employment, infrastructure, community use, green space, nature recovery and renewable energy.
The feedback received will then be used to inform a series of preferred policy approaches which will be the subject of further consultation in due course.
