Conclusion Overall, it is demonstrated how residential development in the location of the Site (in a highly sustainable and unconstrained position) would be consistent with and deliver the objectives of the Emerging Plan, as well as being compatible with the sustainable attributes of the range of spatial strategies presented.

3. Spatial Strategy The Emerging Plan is to propose a spatial strategy of how future growth is accommodated across the County, which will inform the location of strategic sized development. In advance of this the Consultation sets out various options, from which one or a combination of those identified may come forwards.

The introductory text provides an overview of the plan-making context in Oxfordshire. It is a little surprising that there is no mention of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc in the introductory text, given the importance placed on this project by Central Government, and the significant influence the Arc is intended to have on the strategy for accommodating development in Oxfordshire in the period to 2050. We note that whilst three of the authorities in Oxfordshire have up to date Local Plans in place
