There’s still time to comment on the Introducing the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 public consultation.
Published: Tuesday, 5th March 2019
The Plan is part of the £215m Housing & Growth Deal agreed by the Oxfordshire Growth Board with the Government, and is being formed by all Oxfordshire’s authorities.
It will set out aspirations for the county’s future and consider how best to deliver new homes and infrastructure and other improvements to achieve these for a better quality of life for all.
We want to make sure the Plan reflects what is important to our communities, local organisations and businesses and include their views at the earliest stage of the plan-making process.
The public consultation is open until Monday 25 March, and people can download or browse the Introducing the Oxfordshire Plan document and leave their comments online.
Councillor James Mills, chair of the Oxfordshire Plan Member Sub-Group and Leader of West Oxfordshire District Council, said: “This is the start of the conversation as we begin to think about what we want our county to look like in 2050.
“It is our opportunity to achieve a better future for all and we want to ensure it reflects the views of as many people as possible. I’d encourage everyone to get involved either online or at one of our consultation events and have their say.”
The consultation comes after all six Oxfordshire authorities approved the draft document following a series of meetings over the past few weeks.
The document was also subject to recommendations from the Oxfordshire Growth Board Scrutiny Panel.
