The next seven weeks are a chance for everyone who lives in West Oxfordshire to focus on the big picture: West Oxfordshire's 'Local Plan.' In 2018, the Conservatives (who both nationally and locally depend on property developers for political donations) signed us up for 10,000 houses. We're trying to get that number reduced to a more reasonable level, make sure that there is infrastructure in place to support the new houses that are built (so that we're not always stuck in traffic on the A40 or watching our rivers fill with sewage) and wrest control from property developers over where houses are built. It is a fight but we're getting there.
Here's the information on possible options of how and where development could take place as well as a chance to have your say (the deadline is October 25th). If you sign up on the West Oxfordshire District Council website, you can make comments.
