Local Plan (Part 2) – Public Consultation

The Vale of White Horse District Council has published Part Two of its local plan for consultation, giving residents in the district a chance to influence how decisions are made on local planning applications.

Part One of the plan, which explained where the main housing sites in the district could be built and identified the infrastructure needed to support them, was adopted in December last year. Part two includes the detailed policies the council will use when making day to day decisions on planning applications. It will also explain how it proposes to accommodate 2,200 homes for Oxford that they have agreed to plan for within the Vale.

Residents can read the draft version of the Local Plan 2031 Part Two and find out how to make comments at www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/LPP2. Paper copies are available at libraries and district council offices. There will also be a drop-in exhibition at the Cornerstone, Didcot on Wednesday 5 April from 1 to 7pm.

The consultation is now open and the deadline for comments is 5pm on 4 May.
