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).

Consultation on the Proposed Submission Draft of the Plan was undertaken between July 2017 and October 2017.  The representations were considered when preparing the Submission Plan incorporating the focused changes and minor modifications. The Plan contains specific development proposals for helping to meet Oxford's housing need.  Reports on the Partial Review of Cherwell Local Plan were presented to Executive and Council on 26 February 2018.
