The West Oxfordshire District Council’s ‘Ideas and Objectives’ consultation is now live

West Oxfordshire District Council has today launched an 8-week public consultation to help shape the development of the new West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2041.

The consultation runs from 30 August – 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.

Hard copies of the consultation material will shortly be made available at Council Offices and all district libraries.

To complement the digital consultation, we will also be running a number of ‘in-person’ consultation events, further details of which will be made available as soon as possible.

If you have any questions relating to the consultation, please contact the Planning Policy team on planning.consultation
