Decision details

West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2041

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Councillor Carl Rylett, Executive Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, introduced the report, which summarised the outcome of the ‘Your Voice Counts’ Council Plan/Local Plan public consultation, which ran from 24 August – 5 October 2022 and proposed to agree a new timetable for taking the Local Plan through to submission and adoption.


In debate, it was noted that the Local Development Scheme (LDS) highlighted that work on the Salt Cross Area Action Plan was unlikely to happen in July 2023. The Executive also paid tribute to the responses and consultation work that had been undertaken as part of the consultation, and face-to-face engagement during the process despite a perceived low take up in comparison to the total number of residents in the District. Bar charts which were contained within the report to the Executive were intended to show the scale of response connected to the consultations that had been carried out.


Councillor Rylett proposed that the Executive note the report, and agree to approve the updated LDS. This was seconded by Councillor Andy Graham, was put to a vote, and was agreed unanimously by the Executive.


Executive Resolved to:

  1. Note the content of the report;
  2. Agree to approve the updated Local Development Scheme (LDS).
