MAIN 1 – Paragraph 1.7 2.1. The landowners support the need for a plan to be regularly reviewed to ensure that it remains relevant. However, the reference of a review 'typically every 5 years or so' brings into question the robustness of the plan and the guidance in paragraph 157 of the Framework that plans should have an appropriate timescale, preferably of 15- years. Is the reference to a plan review in circa 5 yeas an admission that the plan is failing to meet its statutory duty of providing

We agree with the proposed modification wording to paragraphs 1.6 and 1.7 of the Plan. This offers clarity as to the role that Neighbourhood Plans will play within the Development Plan. Whilst we agree in principle with the amendments to paragraph 1.7 we believe this could be bolstered to provide greater certainty over the regular review period of the Local Plan. We would therefore recommend that the paragraph is amended to state: "This Local Plan covers the 20-year period 1st April 2011 – 31st

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

I am enclosing comments on the Draft Plan as a local resident of Eynsham since 1976 and Oxon. since 1974. I live at 5 Chilbridge Road, Eynsham, Ox294BE. 1.3 "Sustainable Development" must be the key principle from which flows low/ nil energy housing, travel, employment, and conservation and equity. The generality of principle must be specifically and robustly defined and applied through local plan policies: for example, community democracy, Eco housing, travel by non car modes, high density ho

Need to include traffic plan co-operation. At the moment the traffic/transport plan is inadequate.

Shouldn't the intro be specific about the organisations to co-operate with e.g. Transport plan of which there was little mention at the expo in Witney Corn Exchange. In fact it was evident that there was a conflict over the Woodford Way car park site. I'll say this here in case there isn't a space later. This plan suggests that this car park will be used for housing thus reducing car parking in the town when more houses are being built and potentially a threefold increase of traffic. The traffi

On the contrary, it appears that WODC is over-cooperating. Why should Eynsham bear the whole burden of meeting Oxford City's unmet housing needs? As the "Notes to Accompany the Model Representation Form" say, these unmet needs should be met "where it is reasonable to do so and consistent with achieving sustainable development". It is highly questionable whether WODC's plans for Eynsham are either reasonable or sustainable. WODC (and Eynsham) could instead offer to take on some of the burden (out
