Oxfordshire Plan 2050 launches Call for Ideas

The Oxfordshire Plan 2050 team has launched a ‘Call for Ideas’ to try to identify areas for new development and environmental protection in Oxfordshire.

The Plan is part of the £215m Housing & Growth Deal agreed by the Oxfordshire Growth Board with the Government, and is being formed by all Oxfordshire’s authorities.

It will set out aspirations for the county’s future and consider how best to deliver new homes and infrastructure and other improvements to achieve these for a better quality of life for all.

The plan team wants to gather public views on which broad locations should be considered within the Oxfordshire Plan 2050.

These could be locations for large-scale housing or employment, infrastructure projects, or for strategic environmental designations.

A submission form and guidance note with further information on the Call for Ideas are available here.

Even if you just have some initial thoughts, please feel free to suggest ideas and let us know what you think.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 12 April 2019 at 5pm.

Following the consultation, all sites will be assessed for their suitability for suggested land uses.

The information about the sites will be used to inform a draft set of broad location options, which will be available for comment in the next public consultation later this year.

If you would like to stay informed about the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 and would like to receive future updates, please register online.
