Consultation on Further Main Modifications to the Submission Draft West Oxfordshire Local Plan (2011 – 2031)

 West Oxfordshire District Council has published a series of Further Main Modifications to the Local Plan for consultation

The Local Plan establishes a vision of the District in 2031 and sets out a series of objectives, policies and proposals to guide that vision.

The plan seeks to address a number of key challenges facing the District including housing, employment, transport and protection of the natural and historic environment. To provide further detail at the local level, the plan splits the District into five sub-areas and sets out a detailed strategy for each. The Local Plan covers the entire administrative area of West Oxfordshire District.

The Further Main Modifications (FMMs) are intended to address various issues raised during and since the Local Plan examination hearing sessions held in May and July 2017 including those set out in the Inspector’s letter of 16 January 2018.

Additional information about the consultation including where to view documents and how to respond to the consultation is available in the attached letter. Further information can also be viewed on the Councils website

The consultation period runs from Thursday 22nd February 2018 to Monday 9th April 2018.

Any comments must therefore be submitted no later than 5pm on Monday 9th April 2018.

All comments received within this period will be submitted to the Inspector together with the proposed Further Main Modifications and supporting documentation. They will also be made available for public inspection.
