A new website has been launched to provide information about the Oxfordshire Plan 2050.
The Oxfordshire Plan 2050 is one of the commitments made by the six Oxfordshire authorities as part of the £215m Housing & Growth Deal, which will help deliver new homes, including affordable and social housing, and infrastructure to the county.
The Plan will ask residents about what is important to them for the future. It will then examine the different levels of aspiration in order to achieve some, lots or all of these things, and the housing and infrastructure needed for each scenario.
By having all six authorities involved, the Plan will be able to collectively consider the needs of the county and align its strategies so that future housing and infrastructure is more joined up.
Each Oxfordshire district is committed through the Oxfordshire Housing & Growth Deal to submitting a Local Plan for examination by April 2019. The districts are at different stages of this, however each authority is well on the way to producing a Local Plan covering the period up to between 2031 and 2036.
The Oxfordshire Plan builds on the foundations set by the current and emerging Local Plans and looks beyond them, at the strategic planning issues for the period up to 2050. It will give districts a framework for future planning policies and help determine planning applications where appropriate.
The new website contains the latest news, frequently asked questions, details on public accountability and governance, and how people can get involved in shaping the plan, including registering for consultations.
