MAIN 2- Paragraph 1.18 2.2. The landowners do not support the provision of a garden village at Eynsham and in terms of developing the policy framework for the site, it considered that the commitment to the preparation of an AAP for Eynsham is premature given that no Government decision has been made on the proposal.

MAIN 2 Para 1.18 states an Area Action Plan will be prepared for Eynsham. MAIN 49 POLICY E1 states that an AAP will be prepared for the Eynsham Garden village. We agree that an AAP should be prepared to guide the proposed Garden Village to the north of Eynsham to guide this strategic mixed use development. However we consider that the Local Plan should make clear that the AAP will not include the allocation to the west of Eynsham, which proposed Policy EW1b states will be secured through a 'mast

MAIN 4 Para 2.9 states: "Importantly, this Local Plan seeks not only to meet the identified housing needs of West Oxfordshire District but also to make additional provision to accommodate a proportion of 'unmet' housing need that Oxford City are unable to provide for within their own administrative boundary." We fully support this modification, we consider it important that West Oxford cooperates with its neighbouring Boroughs and seeks to accommodate the agreed shortfall from Oxford City Coun

Main Modification (MM)2 of the draft plan confirms that an Area Action Plan (AAP) is proposed for Eynsham to address the issue of unmet housing need arising from Oxford City. As we will identify later in these representations, whilst not objecting to the principle of strategic development at Eynsham, concern is raised regarding the quantum of housing which is deliverable within the Plan period to 2031. The Council's Local Development Scheme does not refer to the timetable for the preparation of

The basis on which the calculation of Oxford City's unmet housing needs is calculated and allocated are unsound for the reasons stated in the comment on 1.17. Oxford City must be required to exercise more assiduity and creativity in meeting its housing needs, and to alleviate the need for commuter dwellings in peripheral districts.

Instead of lumbering Eynsham with more housing because Oxford needs it (are they utilising all brown field sites.) why isn't Oxford thinking about building a new town to meet it's needs.

I find it very difficult to accept that this local plan does not include any detail on the 'Area Action Plan' for Eynsham. We are being asked to accept a local plan that could be completely revised and changed by the AAP with no idea what it may say.
