Response of the Liberal Democrat Group, Oxford City Council, to the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 (JSSP) Reg 18 consultation (part 1) Q1. The Plan needs to clearly differentiate between housing target figures identified in current local plans (i.e. to 2031/36) and aspirations for the period after, which have not been subject to any test. In other words, a baseline needs to be set at c. 2033. In addition, the Plan needs to be clear about how much of the growth referred to is identified by research verif

* 2 Introduction Since Oxford and Oxfordshire home prices are amongst the highest in the country, there are no 'affordable' market homes available to most people in Oxfordshire, for sale now or in prospect at present rates of delivery. The use of the term 'affordable housing' in Oxfordshire has little meaning and the funds allocated to or otherwise obtained by local authorities are far below meeting actual housing demand needs given that County average incomes are no better than the average for

The Oxfordshire Housing and Growth Deal has never been subject to regulation 18 consultation, and therefore the Oxfordshire Plan process will need to submit the Oxfordshire Housing and Growth Deal to such consultation- and look at the alternatives to that growth deal, if the final Plan is to be legal and 'Sound'.

5 Assumptions already made 5.1 The Growth Deal: With reference to paragraph 2 of the Introduction I note that the scope of the Oxfordshire Plan 2050 has already been signed off and endorsed by the Growth Board. Where was the consultation on this? The scope of the plan is fundamental to it and to have already decided upon it is disingenuous and unacceptable. 5.2 The Oxford to Cambridge Expressway: It is not possible to prepare a strategic spatial plan without knowing whether this expressway wil

* Paragraphs 1, 2 & 3: It should be stated explicitly that this first Oxfordshire Plan 2050 represents an initial strategy for the future development of the county, since it is being prepared out of synchronisation with the five current Local Plans of the statutory Planning Authorities. The Plan should evolve in due course through future iterations to represent the high-level, strategic perspective with which future Local Plans should fit. Future versions of the Plan should thus be progressively

While I welcome the notion of a long term spatial plan, and thank you for opening a consultation on it, it's fundamentally wrong that a Growth Deal is the prompt for it. In fact, discussion of how citizens see their area in the long term should have taken place before councils signed up to the excessive housing numbers in the Growth Deal which will permanently compromise our ability to live sustainably in Oxfordshire in any meaningful sense of the word. We should be working out how to make maxim

1. Purpose & Timing 1.1 Having in place an overriding framework for strategic planning in Oxfordshire is essential. Unfortunately, this approach needed to have been adopted many years ago, before consultation and development of the recent round of District Local Plans began. The consequences of this failure are threefold: a) The quantum of new housing and other development appropriate for Oxfordshire has until now largely been developed in a partial vacuum; b) A major part of the new developm

I do not accept the overall premise I do not accept the premise of the Plan that the 'Oxfordshire authorities' and Government have a mandate to single out Oxfordshire for forced economic growth. There have been no deep and widespread consultations, no Citizen's Assemblies, no BBC debates, nothing to ask the people of Oxfordshire what future they see for the countryside of Oxfordshire. Do we want our County's economy to be changed from an efficient and attractive rural economy to an engine of gr

The housing requirement of the 2014 SHMA are out of date and were grossly overstated. Many of the input fuelling the housing numbers were leaps of faith unjustified by the facts. Thus the 100k homes for the OHGD were and are grossly excessive. The inadequacy of GL Hearn's work and the inputs that they were provided with have been starkly illustrated by the UK Gov's new Standard Method formulas. Since the OHGD numbers to 2031 were overstated it makes sense to scale back not only those but also th

It is understood that the preparation of a Joint Statutory Spatial Plan and its end date of 2050 stems from national and local government statements of commitment to the Growth Arc. However, it is considered that it would be helpful to clarify the purpose and status of the Plan as a statutory document. Associated with this, it would also be helpful to clarify the relationship of the Plan with the respective local plans. Both Oxford City and South Oxfordshire Councils have recently been publishe
