University's current mitigation offer doesn't stand up to scrutiny, but will City Planning Committee, 9 Feb, show any backbone?  

Cherwell District Council are holding public consultations on a raft of planning policy documents relating to the Local Plan, running from 29 January to 11 March.

In its response to the consultation on proposed changes to National Planning Policy, CPRE has called into question the effectiveness of the proposals, saying they are likely to make the planning system operate less efficiently, putting the countryside at increased risk.

The West Oxfordshire Local Plan Inspector Mr Simon Emerson has formally suspended the examination of the West Oxfordshire Local Plan 2031 until December 2016, to allow the Council to undertake consultation on ‘main modifications’ in order to make the plan 'sound'.

Residents from all over Oxfordshire attended the Protect Vale Green Belt Walk on Sunday morning to express their concern about plans to develop large parts of the Green Belt around north Abingdon.
