None of the proposed schemes currently being pushed through across the county actually included convincing evidence on the need for house building on the scale. There should have been a genuinely independent assessment of projected needs, alongside a detailed study of existing housing. If building is to go ahead, it must be done responsibly (from the point of view of climate change considerations), and developers must be legally obliged to provide the low cost housing which is actually required.

The first paragraph of this section should clarify that this is a Statutory Plan and it is proposed to follow the relevant Regulations during its production.

100000 more homes by the early 2030's - that is a 40% increase in Oxfordshire's housing stock, then a whole lot more planned along the new Oxford-Cambridge expressway. This represents a fundamental change to the rural character of the county, which is what sets us apart from the rest of the "south-east". It is what makes Oxfordshire such a desirable place to live and what contributes to the wellbeing of the population. The increase in housing is unsustainable, unrealistic and driven by developer

The lack of recognition of the IPCC report render some of the assumptions and plans highly questionable. i recommend a full review of these proposals giving due weight and consideration of the IPCC report and re-issuing the consultation.

The 100,000 new homes by 2031 needs to be put into context of how many homes Oxfordshire already has, a percentage increase would be helpful

The proposed development of green belt land within Oxfordshire is very concerning and given that the number of houses this plan is proposing to build is way in excess of the number required is simply not necessary. The plan is proposed building houses in the shires to provide for oxford city councils unmet need, however the city has not exhausted its opportunities within the city boundaries and again this is an unnecessary burden in the shires and the green belt land within. The effects of build

Growth driven the "unelected" Growth Board is entire prejudicial and fails to acknowledge and respond to local residents. Instead it drives rough shod over the needs and genuine concerns and interests of people most affected by it's decisions. This is not democratic and not acceptable. The figures used to fuel housing growth are flawed to massage excessive expansion of housing beyond actual requirements causing permanent vandalism and long term damage of the rural environment

None of the 'detail and certainty' for the period to 2031/36 can be relied on as these local plans pre-dated the IPCC Report Oct 2018 which explains why all planning (including land use plans like this one) must contribute to a reduction in carbon emissions consistent with only 1.5 degrees of global warming. In developed (ie high emitting countries) this could be as much as 10% reduction in emissions per year. The JSSP needs to work out how that can be achieved if it continues to propose/support

A plan should set out a vision, then say how that is to be achieved. This section is both inconsistent with the vision outlined in the previous section 'a nice place to live' (how can it be if the countryside is built over with 100,000 houses and the associated infrastructure, new roads etc?) and back to front (the house-building 'target' is unjustified and should be an input, not an output).

We cannot see even beyond Brexit. There is no long-term strategy for funding public services. How can you see to 2050? What about plans for neighbouring and less prosperous areas? Is there a national strategy to 2050 on which funding and other assumptions depend? Will we all have lost our jobs to automation by then and all be relying on local charity for handouts?
