SOUTH Oxfordshire district councillors advised that the authority formally amends its controversial Local Plan.

Its scrutiny committee was asked to recommend a way forward for the council after dissatisfaction amongst councillors following the local elections in May.

The council is now run by Liberal Democrats and Greens, who took control after the Conservatives suffered heavy losses two months ago.

Its cabinet will meet next Wednesday to discuss the recommendation and will decide whether it should ask the council to formally adopt that policy at a meeting later this month.

That meeting will take place at the Cornerstone in Didcot from 6pm.
