Have your say on the council’s planning priorities

Today is the last day that you can submit your views on what West Oxfordshire District Council should focus on over the coming years.

Following the change in political administration, the council is updating both its Local Plan and Council Plan.

The feedback will be used to help shape the new Council Plan which will set out the authority's key priorities.

It will also be used in the very early stage of a review of the Local Plan – which sets out where housing, business construction and infrastructure such as roads are built.

It is the first time West Oxfordshire District Council has consulted residents at the very early stage of preparing these documents.

Councillor Duncan Enright, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “We are committed to West Oxfordshire District Council being your Council – putting residents at the heart of all we do.

“We are currently setting our priorities for what the Council should focus its resources on over the coming years in a new Council Plan, and we are also about to start the process of refreshing our Local Plan which is a document that sets out all future growth and development for the area.

“While we would solve every problem if we could, we have limited resources and so we want people to tell us what they want us to work on first, and where their council tax should go, alongside delivering the 50+ services we run every day.

“I look forward to hearing people's views and would encourage everyone in the district of any age to take part in the consultation.”
