Cherwell are due to publish the final version of the Local Plan to meet Oxford's unmet housing ambitions on Monday 19th February. A special meeting of CDC Executive Committee is scheduled for 4.30 pm Monday 26th Feb. The full Council meets at 6.30 pm for the final vote.
This is our last chance to make Cherwell listen. Campaign groups are lobbying hard to see the Plan deferred or rejected.
We plan to be there in numbers to make sure the Councillors hear our concerns.
We are organising a coach to help people attend the meetings. We'll bus you to the Council offices at Bodicote House, coming back after the deciding full council vote.
Our local District Councillors are expected to speak against the Plan. Representatives from the Begbroke and Yarnton Group, the Greenways golfers and Kidlington Development Watch have also asked to address the meeting.
Kidlington Development Watch wrote to all 48 Cherwell District Councillors on 17th February. We have asked to speak at the Committee meeting.
"it would be reckless and irresponsible for Councillors to agree .... The Cherwell LP Part 1 Review should at the very least be held in abeyance until after Oxford's Local Plan has been completed"
