The entire County of Oxfordshire is the subject of a Written Ministerial Statement issued on 12th September 2018 which provides for only a 3 years' supply of housing land rather than the previous 5 years' supply of housing land, whilst the authorities prepare a new joint plan which might be to 2021/2022.
The emerging Local Plan may be the subject of consultation in the first few months of 2019. This follows a partial re-assessment of strategic land in the District. Submission of the Local Plan for examination might take place by the end of 2019. There is an ongoing consideration as to whether the District does or does not plan for an appropriate proportion of the unmet need from Oxford City.
