Consultation on West Oxfordshire homes draft plan

West Oxfordshire District Council

West Oxfordshire District Council

First published in News

At least 9,450 homes could be built in West Oxfordshire by 2029 in a new draft local plan.

West Oxfordshire District Council’s cabinet yesterday agreed to consult on the document. It will replace a former strategy that ended in 2011, which said about 5,500 homes should be built, after taking into account the Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA), published earlier this year.

The SHMA said 11,880 homes were needed, but the council said it had reduced its projections as it had “over-delivered” on previous targets.The consultation will be held from July 28 to September 19.

They should not allow a single extra home to be built in West Oxfordshire until all the transport problems in Witney and along the A40 are resolved.

I agree whole heartedly with kgreen99. A big proportion of the 30,000 extra inhabitants of the "at least 9,450 additional homes will be heading east to nthe Oxford area and South Oxon science areas for daily work. Note the inclusion of th words "at least". That sounds most ominous like an ever rising ceiling in numbers.
