The South Oxfordshire Local Plan 2035 was adopted at a meeting of Full Council on 10 December 2020. It now forms part of the development plan for the district and replaces the South Oxfordshire Local Plan 2011 and Core Strategy (2012).
The Local Plan 2035 was progressed to adoption under a Direction from the Secretary of State. The Plan and its supporting studies set out the future for development in South Oxfordshire up to 2035.

The policies in the development plan are the starting point for making decisions on planning applications in the district.
