PRESS RELEASE The next steps for Vale’s Local Plan

Councillors at the Vale of White Horse will soon have a chance to consider Part 2 of the district's Local Plan and will vote on the adoption of the plan in the autumn.

The council fully adopted Part 1 of the plan in 2016, which contains the main strategic sites for housing and employment development in the district, along with the main policies.

Part 2 of the plan deals with more detailed policies and allocates sites for housing to help the city of Oxford meet its need for housing.

The government's planning inspector examining Part 2 of the plan has released his report, which concludes that the plan is "sound" and could be adopted subject to local democratic approval.

Cllr Emily Smith, Leader of Vale of White Horse District Council, said: "I think I can speak for most councillors to say that we're very keen to make sure we all fully understand Part 2 of the Local Plan, and the implications for the district of adopting it or otherwise before we vote on it. Everybody wants what's best for the Vale and its residents and businesses, and there are lots of things to weigh up."
