Residents invited to comment on Local Plan

South Oxfordshire District Council has published the latest version of its Local Plan and is inviting residents to read it and send their comments in before 22nd November.

The comments will then be submitted along with the plan to the government, ready to be examined by a planning inspector early next year.

During the development of the plan, the council has received thousands of comments from residents and organisations, which have helped shaped the plan.

Anybody who wants to participate in the Local Plan examination, should comment at this stage, even if they have done so previously.

This is a more technical stage of the process and the planning inspector will give more weight to comments based on the technical “soundness” of the plan – the council has created a short video and a guidance note to explain what this means, to help residents provide effective comments.

The plan, video, guidance note and details on how to comment are available at
