In Part 1 of the Local Plan (2011-2031), the Council committed to work which seeks to address the unmet objectively assessed housing need from elsewhere in the Oxfordshire Housing Market Area (HMA), particularly from Oxford City.
On 26 September 2016, the Oxfordshire Growth Board (a joint committee) agreed an apportionment of Oxford's unmet housing need to the Oxfordshire districts, including 4,400 homes to Cherwell District (2011-2031).
The Council is preparing a Local Plan document - a Partial Review of the Cherwell Local Plan - containing specific development proposals for helping to meet Oxford's housing needs.
