Draft Plan – discussions with Oxford City Council Planners

Our Draft Plan has now been sent to the Council by the HNF Chairman Mike Ratcliffe. This is a preliminary draft for comment by the City Planning Department prior to formal submission.
The Steering Committee (SC) approved this draft after considering feedback from statutory bodies and making amendments that agrees with the sense of policy direction from our consultation and meet, where possible, the views of those bodies.
There remain, at a time of change within national planning policy frameworks, areas which may be fluid over the next period, but the SC believe that this draft plan reflects the views of those who the SC has extensively consulted.
The SC is grateful for the informal feedback it has received from the City Council and look forward to the next stage of formal engagement with the City as the plan progresses.
