South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils have come together to work on a new Joint Local Plan. The Joint Local Plan will guide the kinds of new housing and jobs needed and where they should go, informing planning application decisions for the districts.
While development has been allocated up until 2031 for the Vale and 2035 for South Oxfordshire in the current Local Plans, councils must cover a 15-year period so this new plan will cover the extra years to 2041.
The councils want to hear residents’ thoughts on the main issues and how the Joint Local Plan could be used to address them. The consultation also covers other supporting documents alongside the Joint Local Plan Issues. These are:
Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Screening and Scoping Report
Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) Scoping Report
Draft Settlement Assessment Methodology
Duty to Cooperate Scoping Document
You can view the documents and comment on the South Oxfordshire District Council website.
The consultation runs until Thursday 23rd June 2022.
