Welcome to the  Interim Position Statement for the Core Strategy of the West Oxfordshire Local Development Framework.

The Core Strategy will guide where and what development is located in West Oxfordshire through to 2026.  This interim position statement presents the likely approach to key strategic issues facing West Oxfordshire but particularly the housing and employment strategy and our response to climate change.
