Oxfordshire’s six local councils have agreed to work together to produce a Joint Statutory Spatial Plan (JSSP). The plan will look at the County’s growth in a co-ordinated, long term way and put an end to speculative development. It gives an opportunity to plan for the development we need across the whole canvas of the County rather than in a fragmented way through unsynchronised Local Plans.
It will be one of the first such plans to come forward across England, so the pressure is on to ensure it takes adequate account of our natural environment. The intention is to have the plan submitted by March 2020.
Need Not Greed Oxfordshire (NNGO) are hosting an event to raise awareness of the JSSP and encourage our decision-makers to engage with local communities.
Cllr Ian Hudspeth will be joining NNGO on:
Monday 24th September 7-9pm at Stanton St John Village Hall, Middle Road, Stanton St John, Oxford, OX33 1HD
Anyone with an interest is welcome to attend.
Please note this event is hosted by NNGO and will also be the committee’s annual review meeting.
