  • Comment ID: 579
Paragraph 9.2.43 states: "Importantly, the West End Link could offer the potential to serve a 'dual' role not only in terms of transport but also in terms of flood risk mitigation – the concept of which has the support of Oxfordshire County Council and the Environment Agency. As this says there is a "potential" for the dual role, how and when will it be decided if the dual role is delivered or not?

After a period of low pupil numbers, Carterton's primary schools have experienced rapid growth in pupil numbers in recent years, and these higher numbers will feed through into the secondary school, removing the current spare capacity there. Future housing growth will need to be accompanied by expansion of primary and secondary school capacity in line with projected pupil generation. Primary school provision - general Existing permissions, smaller SHLAA sites and windfall sites are expected to

The Amount of Housing 2.2 ASL supports the fact that there is an increase of housing provision when compared to the adopted Local Plan (i.e. 365 to 525).

West Oxfordshire Proposed Submission Local Plan 2011-2031 6. SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC GROWTH Policy E1 - Land for Employment

  • Comment ID: 564
Policy E1 – Land for Employment It is noted that the policy that a further 10ha for employment land is required at Carterton. Land is not allocated for this use. The criteria for what is an 'appropriate location' for employment land at Carterton is unclear as is the process for identifying and allocating sites.
