Residents urged to get involved in South Oxfordshire Local Plan

Communities in South Oxfordshire are being urged to "get involved" as the district council develops its plan to address the need for housing and job growth in the district. The plan includes a more detailed look at what new infrastructure will be needed and how it will be delivered.

The latest draft of the council's new Local Plan will be available for consultation from 29 March for seven weeks to give residents and local organisations the opportunity to comment on the document.

The plan includes more detail about the district's need for infrastructure like new shops, leisure centres, schools and roads - and how this need will change as new houses are built.

Cllr John Cotton, Leader of South Oxfordshire District Council, said: "We are coming to an important stage as we develop the Local Plan and now is the time for residents to get involved. It covers how we plan to deal with the local need for new homes, but also how we'll make sure the district gets the infrastructure and high quality jobs it needs to support them."

The plan will be published on the council's website at

along with all the details on how to comment.
