The Foreword states that the "Plan will be a step change in our approach to securing the best Oxfordshire for 2050". This must include a step change in environmental protection and habitat creation and enhancement. We welcome the recognition of opportunities to enhance the natural environment but there must be a commitment to restore and create new habitats for wildlife to match the scale of development.

The vision is over ambitious given projected increase in population to 2050 whilst striving for aspirations including wellbeing and quality of life. It is also under ambitious because it fails to enablie the local population to define itself what size of population is optimum in relation to the chosen aspirations prioritised by the local population. The plan instead makes untested assumptions of massive economic and population growth as a fundamental good. Most residents are unaware of this cons

General comments by Elsfield Parish Meeting This submission has been done in a great hurry. Our members have been concentrating on the South Oxfordshire Local Plan Regulation 19 consultation. We would welcome the opportunity to provide more detailed responses or take part in detailed workshops to contribute to the Oxfordshire Plan process. We do think that the whole of the Oxfordshire Plan's credibility is undermined by not acknowledging explicitly the possibility that you may not meet the amb

1.1 The FOREWARD states 'the Local Authorities of Oxfordshire are working together to produce the Oxfordshire Plan'. Yet nowhere in The Plan is there any explanation of exactly who / what will be responsible for the decision-making. The decision-making process is an absolutely fundamental part of the plan and the governance and accountability should have been made completely clear in a document which is titled 'Introducing the Oxfordshire Plan'. We hope that future versions of The Plan will corr

* From the outset, and despite initial references to 'quality of life', the Plan seems to prioritise economic development above management of the environment, without adequately addressing the absolute imperatives of climate change, or even tackling persistent social issues, as suggested by the following: "There are real opportunities for continuing our economic success, enhancing the quality of the built and natural environment, improving quality of life, adapting to climate change and reducin

6.1 The following seem to be missing or their importance under-stated in The Plan and we hope that this can be corrected in future versions: * Climate change and its potentially devastating effects * Pollution impacts particularly on the major routes into Oxford City * A Green and Blue Infrastructure Plan * Commitment to protecting the Green Belt. The Local Plans have proposed the release of significant areas of Green Belt particularly around Oxford. We believe that this trend must be reversed
