I write, with apologies for being technically past the consultation period, but prior tp offices main re-opening on 3rd.January, to object to proposed main modification MI87. Following the Taylor Report it is more appropriate to spread development around thus maintaining viability of local village shops and pubs rather than than watching them become places where local people are priced out. The proposed development is in both the Burford Conservation Area and the Cotswold AONB.thus special car

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the proposed modifications to the West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2031. We have reviewed the key changes made to the local plan, and updated supporting evidence, and have no objections to the new proposals made, which principally seek to meet the district's objectively assessed needs in full as well as delivering an agreed portion of un-met housing need from Oxford City. We look forward to future engagement with you and the other Oxfordshire authorities a

Unless these considerations are taken into account, I propose that the proposed New Local Plan should not be accepted. I object to the modified Local Plan primarily because, like the previous plan, it has to be assumed that a large part of the new population taking up the proposed housing stock will have employment outside the district or, at best, in the West Oxfordshire district and most people will travel to and from their places of employment by car. This can only mean that most people will

· I am very supportive of new housing developments when appropriately designed and located, and contain significant provision for ongoing affordable housing. The proposal for the Garden Village at Eynsham appears at face value to provide this so in principle it would have my support. · However, I am concerned that the affordable housing element must include houses available for both purchase and rent, and that those sold must have part ownership sustained so that they continue to provide suppor

Thank you for providing NO Links on your web site to comment on this plan. If I was cynical I would suspect this was deliberate. Housing in the City of Oxford could at least be partially provided by developing some of the College sports fields in the City. Most would enable residents to walk, cycle or use existing public transport. New sports facilities could be provided outside the City and bus students out to them. This works for example at Newcastle University. Students are only up for 24 we

I would like to respond to the proposed changes to the West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2031, but firstly I'd like to complain about the difficulties I encountered wth the official response forms. I found the form and guidelines almost impossible to understand and complete. It was obviously designed to make it as difficult as possible to raise objections and deter any possible objections from anyone with only a basic level of education. I hope this discrimination will not continue and my comments her

Overall the Cotswolds Conservation Board is concerned about the level of development that is now proposed within the nationally designated protected landscape of the Cotswolds AONB. It is the Board's view that this is contrary to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and Section 85 of the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act. The Chipping Norton and the Burford-Charlbury Sub-Areas are used to illustrate our concerns, but these concerns apply across the whole AONB.

Summary and Conclusion 'We support and welcome the need to deliver new homes, and that housing will have to be delivered within the CAONB, (including the Burford-Charlbury sub-area which 'it washes over'). However, we question the basis on which the Council have set out how the new higher indicative housing total will be delivered. We are of the view there is a need to fully consider the impact of development (including the effects on the CAONB where applicable), in order to understand wh

A principal thrust of the amended Local Plan is increased housing numbers. I rather doubt they can be justified except in the context of convoluted and somewhat imaginative planning arithmetic, but accept that WODC had little option but to comply with direction to include them. Most people in Filkins and surrounding villages wish to see Carterton vibrant and prosperous for it is our local town and we rely upon its facilities for our daily needs. But there seems to be no new evidence that anothe
