Exhibitions held as part of Local Plan consultation
The District Council is reminding people about exhibitions being held as part of consultation on proposals for future development in West Oxfordshire.
The Council is holding the events as part of a six-week consultation on the latest draft Local Plan, which sets out a proposed housing target for the District over the next 15 years, and strategy for meeting this.
The exhibitions will take place on:
Monday 1 September: 2-7pm at Lower Hall, Chipping Norton Town Hall, Market Place
Thursday 4 September: 2-7pm at Carterton Town Hall, Alvescot Road
Friday 5 September: 2-7pm at Wesley Room, Methodist Church, High Street, Witney
Residents do not need to attend an exhibition to have a say – further details about the proposals are available on the Council’s website www.westoxon.gov.uk/draftlocalplan and feedback can be submitted online.
Hard copies of the Plan are also available at District Council offices in Witney and Guildhall, Chipping Norton, and at Carterton Town Hall as well as local libraries.
Consultation runs until 19 September and all comments will be taken into consideration before a final version of the Plan is published and submitted to an independent inspector for public examination in spring 2015.
Further information is available by calling 01993 861420.
