The South Oxfordshire Local Plan will be considered for adoption next week at a series of meetings at South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) after the Inspector examining the plan concluded that the plan with its modifications is sound.
The district council has been progressing the Local Plan through the examination process and to adoption under a direction from the Secretary of State, Robert Jenrick.
The plan and the modifications suggested by the Inspector set out the future for development in South Oxfordshire up to 2035. Together they identify locations for housing, retail and employment land as well as the infrastructure required to support this growth. The policies in the plan will be used as the starting point to help make decisions on planning applications in the district.
The plan is being considered for adoption through the council’s democratic decision-making process. A report will be discussed at the council’s Scrutiny Committee on 7th December, before then being considered by the Cabinet at its meeting on 8th December. The Cabinet will make a recommendation to the full Council meeting on 10th December.
More details and links to the plan documents are on the SODC website.
