Emerging Local Plan

South Oxfordshire District Council is continuing work on a new Local Plan which will shape the future of our district.  We are committed to involving our communities in preparing the new plan.

The emerging Local Plan will set out how development will be planned and delivered across South Oxfordshire to 2033.  The policies in the plan will be used to help make decisions on planning applications in the district.

We began work on the new Local Plan in 2014 and have undertaken three consultations to date. 

What happens next?

We will be launching public consultation on our Local Plan: Second Preferred Options on Wednesday 29 March 2017.  Please check back here when the consultation opens to view the draft plan, supporting documents and to comment online.

We will then move to the next stage of preparation where we will publish the version of our Local Plan that we intend to submit to the Planning Inspectorate for examination, to enable representations to come forward that can be considered at examination. 

You can view the details and responses to our previous consultations.  Paper copies of the consultation documents are available to purchase.  Please contact Planning Policy for further details.
