South Oxfordshire Local Plan – Consultation on Proposed Main Modifications

Hulton Park

22nd September 2020

Six-week consultation closes 2 November 2020. 

Following recent examination hearings, the Inspector has asked South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) to prepare a ‘Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications’ to the plan. The schedule reflects the modifications that are considered necessary by the Inspector to make the plan ‘sound’ before it can move to the adoption stage. These are the only significant changes that can now be made to the plan.

There is no need to resubmit comments (representations) made at the Local Plan submission stage or in matters statements as these comments have already been considered as part of the Examination.

The Proposed Main Modifications consultation closes at midnight on 2 November 2020.
