Oxford City Council is embarking on the development of a new Local Plan. The Local Plan 2040 will set out the planning strategy for meeting the needs of the city and once adopted, will be used in determining planning applications for a wide range of development. It will set out where new homes, businesses and community facilities will be built to make Oxford a better place to live, work and visit. It will also look at how we can protect the things that make Oxford special such as open spaces, ecological habitat and areas of heritage. It will guide how development happens, helping to support the transition towards a zero-carbon city, ensuring high quality design, being conscious of health and wellbeing, and addressing inequalities.
The consultation can be accessed on the City Council website.
