Grenoble Road Development (LP 2034)
This new page is for logging developments in relation to the proposed new housing outlined in SODC's Local Plan 2034.
The Plan may be viewed here. The pages most relevant to Sandford-on-Thames are 60-65 and maps on p 263 and p 272 (showing the proposed Park and Ride)
The response period closed on 18.2.19 and the Local Plan was sent to the Government Inspectors along with the responses by the end of March 2019. The response submitted by Sandford on Thames Parish Council may be viewed below.
The Inspectorate has returned the Plan to the SODC along with its comments and an Examination in Public allowing those who have previously responded to the Plan to address points raised by the Inspectors was carried out (on line rather than in person) over July-August. The inspector has now written to the council giving the go ahead to all the strategic housing site allocations including Grenoble Road despite the Green Belt status of these sites. The inspector has also agreed that South Oxfordshire should provide 4,950 homes to help meet Oxford City's unmet housing need. The inspector's letter may be viewed below.
Subsequent developments affecting the future of the emerging Local Plan 2034 may be seen in the list of documents below.
