Consultation on West Oxfordshire homes draft plan

7:40am Thursday 17th July 2014

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.
