West Oxfordshire District Council has opened a consultation into the plans for the development of the district up until 2041.
This new consultation, ‘Your Place, Your Plan’, launched on 30 August and will be open for two months. Residents are being encouraged to share their thoughts on three different topics: the draft objectives of the local plan; the future pattern of development for the district (by reviewing scenarios) and how local land could be used in the future.
There was a previous consultation into the local plan, which attracted a high level of response from district residents. The District Council is hopeful that residents will review the new materials and respond again in this current consultation, viewing their input as key. District Cllr Carl Rylett, who is Executive Member for Planning and Sustainable Development (as well as an Eynsham Parish Councillor), said “it’s vitally important that residents’ views are central to the development of this new plan”.
The consultation will be hosted on the District Council’s online platform, CitizenLab, although paper copies can be located at libraries and local council offices for those would prefer to share their opinions by post.
Eynsham Parish Council will also be discussing the consultation topics and will submit a response in due course.
